International Students

Applying to Indiana University Indianapolis as an international student

With over 400 programs to choose from—including top degrees in business, health sciences, STEM, and more—IU Indianapolis’s premier urban research campus continues to be a top destination for international students from over 142 countries around the world. Access to world-renowned faculty, Fortune 500 companies, and a vibrant capital city provides our international students with opportunities to develop their skills hands on and make real-world impacts as early as your first year. We’re excited to welcome you to IU Indianapolis and support you in your journey to become a future member of IU Indianapolis’ expansive global community and professional network.

If you'll be studying on a non-immigrant visa, you'll be an international student and your application will go through International Admissions in the Office of International Affairs (OIA). The Office of International Affairs will be there to support you with your admission and visa documents.

If you are a US citizen, US Permanent Resident, refugee, asylee, DACA recipient, or undocumented, you won't be considered an international student, so the extra information on this page doesn't apply to you. Your application will go through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions (for freshmen or transfers) or the Graduate School (for graduate students).
