Submit Supporting Documents

Complete your Application

After you finish your online application, the next step to completing your application to IUPUI is to submit the required supporting documentation listed below.

You may submit this documentation through iStart, IUPUI’s online portal for international students. If you are unable to do this, you are also welcome to mail documentation to our office. All documents submitted for admission consideration become the property of IUPUI.

Supporting Documentation for First-Year Students:

  • Official Academic Records

    You must submit full and complete academic records from every secondary school and university/post-secondary institution you have attended. Your records should also include any coursework currently in progress. Failure to submit all academic documents will result in the automatic withdrawal of your application.

    If your school is from one of these countries and the school issued the official transcript in English, then submit the English copies. If your original academic records are not issued in English, submit both the copies of your original records in the native language and copies that have been translated into English by an official translation agency. 

    In order to complete this step, you may mail us your original documents, or you may submit electronic copies of your records by attaching them to the “Submit Academic Records” form in iStart.

    While we can accept an electronic of your records to make an admission decision, once you are admitted you will be required to submit the official, original records in order to verify their authenticity. All documents submitted become the property of IUPUI.

    Transcript evaluations by Credential Evaluation agencies are NOT necessary.

  • Proof of English Proficiency

    If you are a non-native speaker, please review our undergraduate standards for English proficiency requirements.

    If you have copies of your exam results, you may upload an electronic version through iStart. Or you can have the results sent to IUPUI directly from the testing service using the following School Codes:

    IUPUI school codes:

    • SAT: 1325
    • ACT: 1214
    • TOEFL (iBT): 1325

    If you are a Native Speaker of English and a citizen from a country listed below, you do not need to complete this step.

    • Citizen of a country where English is the predominant native language
    • Citizen of a country recognized by IUPUI for TOEFL exemption
  • SAT and ACT Test Scores

    If you attended secondary school in a U.S. or Canadian high school and plan to enter IUPUI within six months of graduation, you are required to submit official SAT or ACT scores.

    If you attended secondary school outside of the U.S. or Canada, SAT or ACT scores are not required for admission. Be sure to have your official scores sent directly to IUPUI by using the following School Codes.

    However, we highly encourage you to submit SAT or ACT results, since they are required for scholarship consideration and can also be used as proof of English Proficiency.

    IUPUI school codes:

    • SAT: 1325
    • ACT: 1214
  • Financial Documentation (for Visa Purposes)

    Since you will need a student visa in order to enroll at IUPUI, you must submit financial documentation verifying your ability to pay your tuition and living expenses for up to one year. To learn more about this, please download and read: Financial Information for International Students

    In order to complete this step, you must fill out the “Submit Financial Documentation” form in iStart.

    We cannot complete your admission, or issue you a visa document until you have completed this step.

  • Explanation of Time Since Last School Attended

    If you plan to enroll at IUPUI more than 3 months after you graduate from secondary school, you will need to give us short explanation of what you have done with your time since graduation.   

    In order to complete this step, you must fill out the “Submit Explanation of Time since Last School/Intuition Attended” form in iStart.  

  • Clarification of Present Visa Status

    We want to make sure that we issue you the correct immigration documentation.

    If you are currently in the US, it’s important that you complete the “Submit Clarification of your Present Visa Status” form on iStart.  You will be asked to submit copies of your current I-20, I-94, or any other immigration documentation you may have. 

    This step is especially important if you currently hold an F-1 student visa and will need us to transfer your current SEVIS record to IUPUI.

    If you are a US Citizen, Permanent Resident, Refugee, or Asylee then you should apply through the IUPUI Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

  • Copy of your Passport ID Page

    In order to make sure we have the correct spelling and format of your name on any immigration documentation we issue you, please complete the “Submit a copy of your Passport ID Page” form on iStart.
