We’re excited that you want to become a Jaguar, and we want to make the admission process as smooth as possible for you. Read the information on this page carefully to learn what you need to do before you start your application, when you are ready to apply, and after you have submitted your application.

We're here to help. If you have any questions about the process, your admissions counselor will be happy to answer them for you.

It's not too late to choose the Jag Life

You spoke, and we heard you. In support of your requests, and due to uncertainty brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, the deadline to apply for freshman admission for the Fall 2020 semester has been extended through Friday, August 14. You will then have until Tuesday, August 18 to submit any application materials, such as transcripts and test scores. Please note, this extended deadline is only available through the ApplyIU application for admission

Need help with the application fee? We've also created an application fee waiver to assist students who wish to apply to IUPUI, but temporarily lack the resources to do so. When completing the ApplyIU application, you may enter the code INCOVID to waive your application fee.
