Find Your Applicant Type

Students come to IUPUC with a variety of backgrounds and education levels. It's important that you select the proper applicant type when you complete the Apply IU application form.

Click the plus sign to see a description and confirm that you have the correct applicant type before you apply.

Freshman applicants are defined as students who will graduate high school during the current school year or have already graduated from high school, have earned a GED or high school equivalency diploma, or have completed at least 12 credit hours of college coursework following high school.

Returning applicants are defined as students who have previously attended IUPUC as a degree-seeking student, even if they have attended another college or university since last attending IUPUC.

Transfer applicants are defined as students who have completed at least 12 credit hours of college coursework following high school. There are two types of transfer students:

  • Intercampus Transfer – These are students transferring from another IU Campus, and can be permanent transfers or temporary transfers (those just taking a few classes, but remaining at their current campus to graduate).
    • Note that temporary intercampus transfers should not use the Apply IU app. Instead, contact an admissions counselor for information about how to transfer in to take just a few classes.
    • External Transfer – These are students who are transferring from a college or university outside of the IU system.

If you have already completed a bachelor's degree and are looking to continue your education, IUPUC offers three challenging Indiana University master's degrees:

M.B.A. – Master’s in Business Administration

M.H.C. – Master’s in Mental Health Counseling

M.S.N. – Master of Science in Nursing – Family Health Practitioner

Non-degree seeking Graduates

Visiting students are defined as students who have graduated high school who want to enroll for a limited period of time (i.e. one semester), want to enroll for personal enrichment without pursuing a degree, or are currently attending a non-IU institution but want to attend IUPUC for a course or two.

Juniors or seniors in high school can take 100- and 200-level courses at IUPUC before they graduate and earn IU credit towards a degree from IUPUC, another IU campus, or another institution.

If you are an international student, we recommend that you speak with an Admissions Counselor before you submit your application. You can email or call 812.348.7211 to set up an appointment.
