Preparing your student and family for success

There is no place quite like Indiana University. We know this time in your family's life can be challenging and exciting.

It is our mission to help international students succeed at Indiana University. We will guide you and your student through the admission process, their transition to IU, courses and education, and through graduation and into the start of their career.

We also assist parents, family members, and other supporters. The information on these pages is for you to see all the ways we can keep your student healthy, safe, and successful. Welcome to the IU family.

Connect with IU and other parents

Join the community of IU parents on the university’s Facebook page for parents. If you have specific questions, though, please contact the Office of International Services.

Parents can also join the IU Parents Circle and Hoosier Family Fellows. Visit the IU Foundation to see how you can support your student now and others in the future.
