Non-degree Students

Non-degree and visiting student admission to Indiana University Indianapolis

At IU Indianapolis, you can apply to take classes as a non-degree or visting student. Students choose this path typically to take classes for personal enrichment, to transfer back to another college or university, or to complete classes or pre-requisites for another program. 

  • If you are planning to only take undergraduate courses (400-level and lower), you will apply as an undergraduate non-degree student. 
  • If you are planning to take any graduate courses (500-level or higher), you will apply as a graduate non-degree student. 

Information for students with prior behavioral or academic conduct

As part of IU Indianapolis' commitment to maintaining a safe campus community, you must disclose on your application prior conduct that resulted in legal or academic disciplinary measures.  

  • Have been subject to formal disciplinary action (including, but not limited to, suspension or expulsion) for academic or nonacademic reasons at any high school, postsecondary institution, college, or university.
  • Have been charged or convicted of a crime (or a foreign legal equivalent) that has not been expunged by a court.
  • Have any currently pending criminal charges (or a foreign legal equivalent) against you.
  • Have engaged in any behavior that caused injury to any person(s) or property (including, but not limited to, vandalism or behavior that led to a restraining order against you) that resulted in some form of discipline or intervention.

 

You will not automatically be denied admission to IU Indianapolis if you have a previous conviction or disciplinary action, but your application must be reviewed by the Admissions Committee before an admission decision is made. It can take up to four to six weeks for the Admissions Committee to review applicants with disclosures.

If you meet the criteria above, you will need to provide IU Indianapolis with a detailed statement of your prior conduct and, if applicable, grant us consent to access any legal records associated with your disclosure.
