Freshmen admission deadlines

Students who complete their application materials by November 1, the early action deadline, get first and maximum consideration—both for admissions and scholarships. It is also the deadline for direct admission consideration for some schools.

February 1 is the regular decision deadline and the deadline for Global Engagement Scholarship consideration.

If you submit your application after February 1, you will only be considered if space is still available.

You will receive a response from us no later than the dates below, which are based on the date your application was completed and all your application materials were received.

Scholarship consideration

You will be evaluated for Selective Scholarship Application (SSA) eligibility if you are a first year (freshman) applicant and submit your complete application for admission to IU by November 1. If you meet the November 1 SSA deadline, you can submit updated SAT or ACT scores (if applicable) through January 15 for additional SSA consideration.

Qualified international students who submit a complete application for admission by February 1 will be considered for merit-based scholarships specifically for international students. These scholarships will be determined based on academic information provided in the admission application—no separate application is required.
