Submit Supporting Documents

Complete your Application

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

You may submit this documentation through Atlas, IU Indianapolis' 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 IU Indianapolis.

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 uploading them to the “Submit Academic Records” form in Atlas.

    While we can accept an electronic copy 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 IU Indianapolis.

    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 Atlas. 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 have completed upper secondary school with at least three years of study in one of the countries listed here, then you have provided proof of English proficiency for undergraduate admission purposes.

  • SAT and ACT Test Scores

    IUPUI will be adopting a test-optional policy starting Spring 2021. This new policy means we do not require SAT or ACT test scores for admission or merit scholarship consideration. Instead, we holistically review each application for its individual merits and qualities, including academic performance and preparation, the strength and quality of the school curriculum, your recent grade trends and class rank. However, if you have taken these exams, you are encouraged to submit them if you would like to use them to meet minimum English proficiency requirements.

    IUPUI school codes:

    • SAT: 1325
    • ACT: 1214
  • 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 Attended” form in Atlas.

  • 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 Atlas. 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 Atlas.
