Admissions Standards for Freshmen and Transfer Students

Undergraduate Admissions Application Fee

Applicants applying for admission to IUPUI through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions are required to submit a nonrefundable $55 application fee with their application.

Applicants who have enrolled in a degree-seeking program and completed courses at an Indiana University campus, Purdue University campus, or have received their associate's degree from Ivy Tech Community College or Vincennes University, are exempt from paying this fee. Additionally, students who have completed at least 45 credit hours at Ivy Tech or Vincennes and are currently enrolled at the institution are also exempt from this fee.

Application fee waivers are granted to current high school students who demonstrate financial hardship by submitting a ACT, CollegeBoard, or NACAC fee waiver request form through their high school guidance counselors. If you apply online, and request a fee waiver, your waiver form must arrive by the date you designate on your application.

Final Transcripts

If you are currently enrolled in either high school or college courses, you must arrange for a final transcript to be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. The high school transcript will be reviewed for satisfactory completion of entrance requirements and a college transcript reviewed for credit evaluation. High school seniors who have been admitted prior to final grades and who then receive a D or F in a Core 40 course required to earn the Core 40 endorsement must notify the Director of Undergraduate Admissions to discuss enrollment options.

Military Training

Military training will be evaluated for college credit. Please include a copy of your DD214 or DD295. You can receive up to eight semester hours of transfer credit for completion of basic training. Additional credits may be granted for specialized military training listed on these documents; however, the total credit will be limited to fifteen hours. Students who are admitted into Purdue programs will only receive a total of eight semester hours for all of their military experience.

Previous Attendance at IUPUI or another IU Campus

If you have attended another IU campus as a degree-seeking student, you are an intercampus transfer, and you must apply online at enroll.iupui. edu.

These provide free access for people on campus to request any type of assistance.

Please note that Section 483 and 484 of the Higher Education Act (HEA) of 1965, as amended, provide the Department of Education the authority to ask you and your parents the questions on the FAFSA and to collect the Social Security numbers of you and your parents. State and institutional student financial aid programs also may use the information that you provide on the FAFSA to determine if you are eligible to receive state and institutional aid.

You will be assigned a ten-digit number that will be your University I.D. That number will be included with your admission correspondence. Your Social Security Number will not be used for this purpose.
