ABOUT INDIANA UNIVERSITY
Since 1820, Indiana University has helped students create brighter futures, while also seeking ways to drive innovation, from breakthroughs in DNA technology and cancer research to trailblazing cultural programs and resources.
The business and music schools of IU are well regarded. We are home to the first informatics school in the country, the largest medical school in the country, and the first school of philanthropy in the entire world. We have hundreds of academic programs, many of which are among the greatest in the world, and we are constantly considering the future.
IU ONLINE APPLICATIONS OPEN DATE
At Indiana University, we have an early action deadline (non-binding) of November 1 and a regular decision deadline of February 1.
What do “early action” and “non-binding” mean?
If you apply by the early action deadline, you will find out sooner if you’ve been accepted. “Non-binding” means that even if you’re accepted, you’re not required to choose to attend IU Bloomington.
When should I apply?
For the highest scholarship consideration, apply by the early action (non-binding) November 1 deadline.
You must submit a complete application for admission including an official transcript, IU-specific essay, and SAT/ACT (if applicable*) by November 1 to be considered for the early action (non-binding) deadline. Electronically submitted materials must be received by November 1, and hard copy materials must be postmarked on or before November 1.
If you meet the November 1 deadline, you may submit updated SAT and/or ACT scores until January 15 for additional scholarship consideration.
After February 1, applications will only be accepted on a space-available basis.
*Admission to IU is now test-optional. To find out if this is the right path for you, learn more about our test-optional admissions policy.
Indiana University admissions are done thrice a year in Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. The upcoming fall deadline is marked for November 1 and December 1 for Spring.
IU PROSPECTUS AND HOW TO APPLY
- Sort your information.
Make a note of all your senior-year classes and extracurricular activities before you get started so you’ll be prepared to submit them in your application. Also think about whether you want to submit your SAT/ACT test results with your application. Test results are not required to apply to IU, and admission choices are always based on a variety of criteria, such as your GPA, the courses you took in high school, your extracurricular activities, your test scores (if you include them), and other accomplishments.
-Are you considering financial aid?
Filling out your FAFSA is the first thing you should do (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). You have until October 1 to submit your FAFSA application. This application is used to assess which federal scholarships and loans you are eligible for in order to lower your tuition and assist with college costs. Campus-specific deadlines may differ, but the earlier you submit this form, the better!
- Select a campus (es)
By choosing which IU campus(es) you want to submit your application to, you can apply to any IU campus using the Apply IU app. You may select as many as you would like, and if any are necessary, you will only need to pay one application fee.
You can select to use the Common App if you only want to apply to IU Bloomington, IUPUI, and/or IU Northwest.
Visit IU Online to learn more about earning your IU degree entirely online.
For information on how to apply for a graduate or professional program, go to the program’s website.
-Applying from outside the U.S.?
You’ll have to apply to one campus at a time, but you can resubmit the same application to each campus. You’ll pay an application fee for each campus you apply to.
- Create your online application
Once you know what campuses you want to apply to, start your application. Remember that each campus accepts one or more of the following application types:
Review the table at the bottom of this page to find out which application types your campus(es) will accept.
Applying for a graduate or professional program?
Head straight to the Admissions website for the campus or program you’re interested in.
- Start the application
Follow the on-screen guidelines to complete your application. With Apply IU, you can save your application at any time (without submitting it) and finish it later.
IUPUI or IU Bloomington applications?
You’ll be required to respond to a prompt in the application with an essay of 200–400 words. As soon as you’ve finished writing it, you can upload it right to your online Apply IU application (find the “Upload a file” button under “Essay Question” in the Additional Information section).
- Inform us of the majors or programs in which you are interested.
Each campus will require you to select a major* (or, if you’re applying to IU Online, a degree program) that you’re interested in. This merely enables us to better direct you in accordance with your objectives and interests. Later, you can always switch your major.
The general area of focus for your undergraduate studies is called a major.
An organized course of study leading to a certain degree is known as a degree program.
-Uncertain of your major choice?
That’s entirely fine; a lot of freshmen begin their college careers without having chosen a major! Simply check for the Exploratory or Undecided option, or select General Studies. Your selection won’t influence whether you get accepted to the campus.
- Review your due dates.
Depending on how many schools you’re applying to, each one may have a different deadline. The earliest deadline is when you should send in your completed Apply IU application (see the application requirements table on this page for a handy list).
When should you anticipate hearing something?
In spite of the fact that each IU campus has a slightly different timetable for assessing and responding to applications, you’ll hear directly from the schools you applied to about decisions and future steps. For further information, visit the Admissions page on each campus’ website.
