Application Procedures for International Citizens International students may request an application packet by visiting our Web site (www.slis.indiana.edu) or by contacting the SLIS Admissions Office, Indiana University, Wells Library 011, 1320 E. Tenth Street, Bloomington, IN 47405-3907, (812) 855-2018 or toll-free (888) 335-7547. International students may also apply online. Completed forms and all supporting materials must be returned to the Office of International Admissions, Indiana University, 300 N. Jordan Avenue, Bloomington, IN 47405-7707, (812) 855-4306. Payment of an application fee is required. Questions should be directed to International Admissions via e-mail (email@example.com).
All international applicants for any SLIS degree program—master’s, specialist, or Ph.D.—must submit a recent official Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test score report from Educational Testing Service. The test must have been taken within three years of application. Scores on all three sections (verbal, quantitative, and analytical) will be considered. GRE minimum scores of 500 verbal, 500 quantitative, and 4.5 analytical are required. (Ph.D. minimum scores are 600 verbal and quantitative and 4.5 analytical.) The Educational Testing Service, P.O. Box 6000, Princeton, NJ 08541-6000, provides GRE information (www.gre.org). It is the responsibility of the applicant to take the GRE test at a time that will allow scores to arrive at the SLIS Admissions Office to meet all school deadlines. GMAT scores may be submitted for GRE scores for SLIS master’s degree applicants (a minimum score of 31 in each area is required).
Students whose first language is not English must submit recent official scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). A minimum TOEFL score of 600 (on the paper test) or 250 (on the computer test) is required for admission to SLIS graduate programs. See the TOEFL Web site for details: www.toefl.org.
Students whose first language is not English must also take an English language placement test upon arrival at IU. The results of this test are used to determine what, if any, remedial English courses must be successfully completed before graduate study begins. International students should understand that all admissions are granted conditionally, upon verification of English language proficiency, and that enrollment in graduate course work is not permitted, or is limited, until all language deficiencies have been removed.
Additional Bloomington campus information for international applicants can be found on the International Center's Web site: (www.indiana.edu/~intlserv/Content/International_Center/welcome).
