How to Apply

Transfer Students

Apply Now

The application for students applying for fall 2015 will be available August 15. 

If you have questions about applying for fall 2014, please call Cindy Wise in the Office of Admissions at (812) 855-9845.

If you are currently a degree-seeking student at an IU campus other than Bloomington, complete the Intercampus Transfer Application.

If you are applying for transfer admission from any other accredited two- or four-year college in the United States, you have a few options for applying to IU:

  • Apply online. Our online application is easy to use and secure, and it gives you immediate confirmation that we’ve received your application.
  • Download and complete the Transfer Application for Admission (PDF) in August.
Application Checklist

Before you apply, make sure to review our transfer admission standards and priority dates. In addition to a completed online or paper application, you must submit the following items before we can start our review:

  • $60 application fee. If you apply online, you must pay by credit card. If you submit the paper application, you can include a check or money order. The application fee is nonrefundable.
  • High school transcript and test scores. This is required if you have completed fewer than 26 semester hours (or 39 quarter hours) of transferable college course work. Please ask your high school to send your official transcript directly to IU. IU considers only official test scores sent directly from the testing agency.
  • College transcript. We require an official transcript from each college or university you have attended. Arrange for your official transcript to be sent directly to the IU Office of Admissions at 300 North Jordan Avenue, Bloomington, IN 47405. If you choose to have your college or university transcript delivered through Parchment or eSCRIP-SAFE, your transcript will be downloaded by our office upon receipt. If your college or university requires an email address for electronic delivery, please use
Admission Status

We know that when you really want to go to a college, it feels like you’re waiting months for that acceptance letter instead of weeks. But at IU, the wait is for a good reason: we receive thousands of applications per year, and we want to review all of them—including yours—carefully.

So please bear with us. We’ll review your application as soon as we receive all of your supporting documents. You can expect to hear whether you’ve been accepted to IU four to eight weeks after we receive all of your application materials.

In the meantime, you can check your admission status online.

Second Degree Candidates

Academic policies related to obtaining a second degree vary by individual school or college at IU Bloomington. In fact, some schools do not accept second degree candidates. If you are interested in pursuing a second degree, you should first contact the school of interest before you complete any type of application to learn their policies and procedures regarding advanced study.
