IUPUI - "Where Impact is Made..."
IUPUI is a part of two great public university systems-Indiana University and Purdue University-and offers the greatest number and widest range of degrees in the state of Indiana. They range from certificates to Ph.D. and professional degrees. All degrees bear either the IU or Purdue designation. Students are, therefore, affected by policies of Indiana University, Purdue University, or both. Such university-wide policies and procedures are set by either the Board of Trustees or the faculty with trustee approval.
University College was established in 1997 as a gateway for entering undergraduate IUPUI students. New and transfer students are granted admission to University College (either full admission or dual admission with a degree-granting school). Students remain in University College until they have declared a major and meet the necessary conditions for transfer to a degree-granting school. University College provides many programs and services to ensure that students move into their majors as efficiently as possible, including academic advising, academic support programs, first-year seminars, career planning, peer mentoring, orientation, scholar support, and themed learning communities.

Fields of study or disciplines are housed in schools at IUPUI. School policies and procedures govern all the students within each school. Most fields of study are housed in departments within the schools, but in some schools they may be called by other names, such as divisions. The departments and schools themselves determine degree requirements and whether students are eligible to receive a degree. Students must be in a school and take a specific number of courses at IUPUI (residence requirements) to be eligible for a degree. A current list of degree programs appears online at www.iupui.edu/academic/schoolsdepts.htm.
Web pages in this bulletin cover each school at IUPUI. For each school, pages are dedicated to admission, overview, course listings, and undergraduate and graduate programs which contain specific degree requirements for all degrees offered by the school, policies and procedures, and current faculty. Special teacher certification and honors information is also included where relevant.
For Columbus-specific information relating to admission, registration, financial aid, scholarships, placement testing, academic advising, orientation, and student activities, see the IUPUC section in this bulletin.
Our Honors College offers a dynamic academic experience to high ability students seeking a unique experience in an urban research environment, and links students to world-class faculty engaged in cutting edge and translational research, creating a community of scholars which will make a difference. For additional information see the IUPUI Honors College section in this bulletin.
A leader among academic libraries, the IUPUI University Library moved to its present location in 1993. The building was designed by renowned architect Edward Larrabee Barnes and was envisioned as one of the most technologically advanced libraries in the country. Today the library continues to focus on leveraging technology to support student success with 30 full-time faculty librarians, plus programs in information literacy and digital preservation of rare resources and scholarly research. With over 80,000 electronic serial titles and thousands of e-books and databases, the library’s resources are always available to students online.
