Inquiries from international applicants should be directed to:
The Office of International Services, which handles international admissions, will not accept paper applications for graduate admission. International students are required to use the online application.
PLEASE NOTE: In most cases, international applicants should mail supporting documentation such as transcripts to the International Admissions address above, but there are a number of programs that are exceptions to this rule. If you are an international student, we strongly recommend that you review the application checklist for prospective graduate students on the website of the Office of International Services, in order to ensure that you follow the proper procedure and send all required materials.
If you have a bachelor's degree and wish to study on a non-degree basis without necessarily concentrating in a single department, you can be admitted as a continuing non-degree student on the Bloomington campus. Contact Jessica Durnal (812-856-4503) at the University Graduate School if you have further questions.
If you have general questions about applying for graduate school at IU, please contact UGS at (812-855-8853) or email@example.com.
