Admission Info: "Standard Admission Making certain that students are prepared to be successful is of primary importance to us when making admission decisions. As part of the review of your application, we will examine your high school record, including courses completed, grades earned, class rank, and standardized test results. In general, we use the following standards when making admission decisions: 1. You must have graduated from high school or will graduate before enrolling. 2. The best preparation for college studies is the completion of a strong college-prep curriculum. If you are a current Indiana high school student, you are expected to complete Core 40 and are strongly encouraged to earn the Academic Honors Diploma. If you are not in an Indiana high school, you should complete the following core of classes to be considered for admission: • 4 years of college-prep English • 3-4 years of mathematics, including second-year algebra (We highly recommend 4 years.) • 3 years of social sciences • 3 years of laboratory science • 4 years of some combination of foreign language, computer science or additional mathematics, laboratory sciences, social sciences, or English courses. Some IUPUI schools require additional courses. 3. You must provide the results of your SAT or ACT, including the Writing Section of the test (scores must be received at IUPUI by May 1). If your class has graduated and a fall semester has passed since you graduated, you do not need to take the SAT or ACT. (However, if you did take the test, we would like to see the results.) The results of the writing section assist you and your academic advisor with placement into a writing course. Though test results are considered during the admission review, we do not deny students strictly based on their test results. The SAT or ACT is most important when considering you for dual admission to your intended major and scholarship consideration. 4. Though no grade point average guarantees admission to IUPUI, we generally expect to see students with a “B” average when reviewing applications. The trend in your grades and the difficulty of your courses are also very important, and we review favorably those students who have improved their grades in their junior and senior years. The two most important factors will be the courses you attempted and the grades you earned. Adult students over the age of 21 should note that SAT or ACT scores are not required and, although a high school transcript is the primary criteria for admission, the Admissions Committee also considers such things as military experience, life experiences, and job responsibilities after leaving high school. "

Scholarship/Financial Aid: IUPUI administers over $8 million in institutional financial aid and scholarships every year to thousands of IUPUI students to aid them in paying for their education. Scholarships, awarded to students through many different programs at IUPUI, are usually awarded based on academic performance and potential for future performance. Some programs also look at leadership, extracurricular involvement and community service. A few programs also take financial need into consideration.
