Admissions Requirements

Application Requirements

Faculty members in the program to which you are applying will make initial decisions about admissions. After faculty members review applications, they make their admissions recommendations to the Associate Dean for Graduate Studies, who makes the final decision.

Note that faculty members will not review your application until it is complete. After you submit your application online, you will receive an email listing all of the supporting documents that have yet to be received (if any). We recommend that you submit your application well in advance of the deadlines to allow time for all materials, including letters of recommendation, official transcripts, and official test scores, to arrive before the deadline.

If your application is incomplete, you will receive an e-mail notification specifying which items are missing.

Admission to all graduate programs is subject to availability of space. Program faculty size, the number of students already in a program, and the number of new applicants all affect selection ratios in a given year.

The policy of Indiana University prohibits the use of the following characteristics in selecting students for graduate programs: age, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious preference, socioeconomic class, country of birth, or physical handicap.
