Apply online. Our online application is easy to use and secure, and it gives you immediate confirmation that we’ve received your application. Applicants should apply here.
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. Before submitting any documents, please read our office’s Submitted Document Policy.
- $65 application fee. If you apply online, you must pay the fee by credit card. If you apply on paper, please follow the instructions for submitting your application fee. We do not accept checks for international applications fees.
- Secondary school academic records. Secondary school records are required if you have completed less than one full year of studies or fewer than 26 semester hours (or 39 quarter hours) of transferable college course work. Please ask your secondary school to send your official academic record directly to IU. If the original is not in English, also include a certified, literal translation. In all cases, the record must be an official copy bearing an original stamp or seal. Learn more about country-specific requirements within our information for international freshman applicants.
- Official transcript(s) from each college or university you have attended. Arrange for your official transcript(s) to be sent directly to IU at the time of application. U.S. and Canadian transcripts should be sent directly from the registrar to International Admissions. If you are studying in another country, please submit official copies of your academic record. If the original is not in English, also include a certified, literal translation. In all cases, the record must be an official copy bearing an original stamp or seal.
- Request for Review of Undistributed Credit. Be sure to access the Credit Transfer Service to find out what courses will transfer from your current university. For any courses that are not listed on the Credit Transfer Service, complete the Request for Review of Undistributed Credit and submit it along with your transcripts and the required supporting documents.
- International Student Financial Documentation form and supporting financial documentation. Financial Documents are not required at the time of application, but will be required for admitted students before we will issue any visa documentation to you. If you are admitted, you will be able to upload this information at http://istart.iu.edu. Federal regulations require students to demonstrate that they have the financial resources to support themselves and any dependents during their first year of study in the United States.
- SAT/ACT scores. We require the SAT or the ACT, with the writing assessment(s), for all applicants who have completed fewer than 26 semester hours (or 39 quarter hours) of transferable college course work, unless you have been out of secondary school for more than three years. When you register for either test, make sure to have your scores sent to IU Bloomington. To submit your scores electronically, please use the IU Bloomington reporting codes located at the bottom of this page.
- Demonstration of English Proficiency Indiana University Bloomington requires all non-native English speaking international undergraduate applicants to demonstrate English proficiency. For additional details on the options to meet English proficiency requirements, click here.
