Returning Adult Students

Applying to Indiana University as an adult student

We're glad to hear you are considering IU Indianapolis to either start or continue your education as an adult learner. 

When you apply for admission, regardless if you are applying as a beginning freshman, a transfer student, or even a graduate or professional program (among others), your application will be reviewed based on what you have achieved, rather than how long it has been since you last enrolled in any form of education. 

Additionally, as you look to apply, it's important to be aware of factors for students who are veterans or active members of the US Armed Forces, second undergraduate degree applicants, or applicants who have previously enrolled on our campus.
