Apply to LEP

The LEP application process is entirely separate from the DU admissions process. However, we encourage students to submit their LEP information at the same time they apply to the University.

Please see the Visit LEP page for information on prospective student visits.


Application Process

1. Complete the LEP Application

2. Submit Documentation

  • Accepted forms of documentation include an IEP, 504 plan, neuropsychological evaluation, or doctor's note. Please have this documentation ready to submit when you complete your application.
  • For questions or potential alternate forms of documentation, contact lep@du.edu.

3. Application Evaluation

  • Once students are accepted to DU, we will begin evaluating their LEP applications.

4. Acceptance to LEP

  • If our services are a good fit for the student, they will be accepted into the LEP.

5. Complete the LEP Contract

  • Accepted students will not be enrolled in LEP until they complete the LEP Contract in PioneerWeb. The contract should not be completed until after being accepted into the LEP.


Current DU Students

If you are a current DU student, we encourage you to apply early in your academic career; however, we do consider applications year round based on available space.


Incoming First-Year Students

Spaces fill up fast! To avoid potentially being waitlisted, incoming first-year students are encouraged to complete all 5 steps of the enrollment process for LEP by July 1st the summer before starting at DU.

If you've applied to DU early action or early decision and also submitted an LEP application, please know that we will evaluate LEP applications and get back to you by the end of January each year. Otherwise, the LEP admits students on a rolling basis starting February 1st and will evaluate applications within two weeks of being accepted to the University or completing the LEP application if already accepted.
