Test-optional admissions policy
IU Bloomington's test-optional admissions policy allows students to choose at the point of application whether to have SAT or ACT test scores considered as part of the application.
November 1 deadline
Remember that to receive highest scholarship consideration, your students must submit a complete application for admission, including official transcript, essay, and SAT/ACT (if applicable) by the early action (non-binding) deadline of November 1. Electronically submitted materials must be received by November 1, and hard copy materials must be postmarked on or before November 1. All students who apply by the November 1 early action (non-binding) deadline will receive highest scholarship consideration, regardless of whether they choose to have test scores considered as part of their application.
Please note that we will begin releasing admission decisions in early October, and all students who have submitted a complete application by November 1 will receive a response no later than January 15.Review all deadlines
