First Steps

How do I gain admission to the school at IUB that offers the major that is best for me?

Admission to some schools, majors or programs is competitive or selective and requires a formal application.  Other schools, majors or programs do not require a formal application. They admit a student by a process of “certification” once the student has successfully completed the requirements for admission.

If you plan to apply to a competitive program, it is wise to plan for more than one possible academic direction. Your University Division advisor will help you understand your options and develop alternate academic plans as needed.
