Freshman Applicants

Watch our video to see how to apply

To make things as easy as possible, we’ve broken the application process into step-by-step instructions. Watch our video to learn the steps to apply to IU.

After you apply

To check your application status, you will need to create an IU computing account. Read below for instructions and to learn more about what you can do after you apply.

About two weeks after we receive your application, you should receive an email containing your university ID number.

Use your university ID number to create your IU computing account, which you need to check the status of your application.

Please note: The computing account is different than the account you created to apply.

Steps to create your IU computing account:

  1. Open Create My First IU Account in One.IU.
  2. Read and agree to the Guidelines for Appropriate Usage.
  3. Enroll in the Passphrase Self-Service Reset System. If you forget your passphrase, this tool will let you reset it yourself without having to visit a UITS Support Center location in person.
  4. Save or record your account information in a secure place. You will need this information each time you log in to your IU computing account.
  5. It may take up to 24 hours before you can log in to some services.

What to do if you have forgotten your ID or other information:

Please note that if you have previously been enrolled in or participated in a program at any IU campus and were given a 10-digit university ID number and username, you will use the same university ID number and username to access (or set up) your IU computing account.

Now that you’ve created your IU computing account, you’ll be able to check the status of your application and view your To Do List in One.IU.

Your To Do List will tell you when our office has received each of your application materials. Please be aware that after your items are received, it may take up to four weeks for them to be updated in your To Do List. Please be patient and check back frequently.

If you receive an email from us asking you to complete your application but you just sent the missing materials, assume that the email was sent before we received your materials or that they have not been processed yet.

To check the status of your application

  1. Go to Application Status in One.IU and click “Start.”
  2. Log in using your IU username and passphrase to see the status of your application.

To find your To Do List

  1. Go to To Do List in One.IU and click “Start.”
  2. Log in using your IU username and passphrase to see your To Do List.

If you have any outstanding items listed, your application will be considered incomplete and will not be reviewed. Please send all outstanding To Do List items to our office or contact us if you have questions.

If you chose at the point of application to have your SAT or ACT test scores considered as part of your application review, you can self-report your scores by completing the form below.

PLEASE NOTE: Self-reporting your scores will not change your selection regarding whether or not you want to have your test scores considered as a part of your application review. If you would like to update your test-optional selection, please review the instructions under "Change your test-optional selection."

Self-report your scores

If you want to update your selection of whether or not to have test scores included in your application review, please complete the form below.

PLEASE NOTE: Only complete this form if you have already submitted your application and need to change your test-optional selection. If you don't want to change the test-optional selection you made on your application, do not complete this form. If you opt to have your test scores considered and have not yet submitted test scores, you will also need to self-report or send your official scores.
