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—the Apply IU Application, 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.

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.
