Criminal Activity Disclosure Policy


IUPUI is committed to maintaining a safe environment for all members of the university community. As part of this commitment, the University requires applicants who have (1) been convicted of any felony or a misdemeanor such as simple battery or other convictions for behavior that resulted in injury to a person(s) or personal property or (2) who have a history of formal disciplinary action at any college or university attended to disclose this information as a mandatory step in the application process. A previous conviction or previous college disciplinary action does not automatically bar admission to the University, but does require review.

Information to be submitted includes: the nature of the offense (and offenses if more than one), location (city, state, country) of conviction of previous conduct, dates and court disposition, and also reason for the behavior. This statement must also include a grant of permission to IUPUI for complete access to criminal records, if any. Applicants who have been disciplined at another college or university must provide a statement, which includes explanation, location and name of institution, dates, and disposition of the case. This statement must also include a grant of permission to IUPUI for complete access to disciplinary records, if any, at the previous college or university. For further information about either of these requirements, call 317-274-4591. This information must be sent within 48 hours of submitting the application on-line.

Please note, there is a minimum timeframe of 4 to 6 weeks for reviewing criminal activity disclosures once it is received by the Criminal Activity Review Committee.
