We’re glad you’re interested in IU. You’ll follow the same application process as our future freshmen. However:

  • You do not need to send ACT/SAT scores.
  • You do need to contact your high school and have it send your final, official transcript with your graduation date. Or, you need to submit proof that you have earned the Indiana High School Equivalency Diploma.
  • You do need to have completed the 34 high school credits that we require for admission.
