Freshman Students

Application process for freshmen

A freshman is a beginning student who has never attended a college or university before.

IU accepts three applications for the fall semester—the IU eApplication, the Common Application, and the Coalition Application. We do not have a preference for any particular application—you can choose whichever one you would like.

If you’re applying for a spring or summer semester, or youre applying to the Jacobs School of Music for any semester, you need to use the IU eApplication.

See our application tips below to help you decide which application to use.

The application for students beginning their studies in fall 2018 will be available on August 1. We are no longer accepting applications for fall 2017. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Office of International Services at (812) 855-9086.
