Freshman Applicants

The application process for future freshmen

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, when, and after you apply. If you have any questions about the process, your admissions counselor will be happy to answer them for you.

Start your application for admission

Looking for the Common Application? Applications for admission using the Common Application are no longer available for 2020 terms. Applications via the Common Application for 2021 terms will open on August 1.

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 to IUPUI has been extended through Friday, July 31. When submitting your application, you won't just be considered for admission — you'll also be automatically considered for a Jaguar Excellence Award, IUPUI's admission-based scholarship! 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.
