Admission Standards

At IUPUI we carefully review each application for its individual merits and qualities. We look at your academic performance and preparation, the strength and quality of the curriculum you were in, your recent grade trends and class rank.

We use the following standards when making admission decisions:

  • You have completed or will complete secondary school by the time of enrollment;
  • No grade point average guarantees admission to IUPUI. We look for applicants who have demonstrated a "B" average or above average grades, with strong grades in math and science;
  • SAT or ACT exam scores are not required for admission; however, they are required for most of our scholarships. If you submit more than one set of scores, we will consider the highest critical reading and math component scores for the SAT or the highest ACT composite;
  • You must meet our English language Proficiency standards.

Secondary School Graduation

You must earn a diploma from an accredited secondary school or examination results that show an equivalent level of academic achievement such as “O” levels or a general equivalency diploma (GED) to be eligible for admission. If you are homeschooled or attend an alternative school, you should submit credentials that demonstrate equivalent levels of achievement and ability.
