All students entering the IU School of Liberal Arts must be admitted officially to IUPUI as a degree-seeking student.

After students have been admitted by IUPUI, they must also be admitted by the specific school in which they intend to pursue a degree. The IU School of Liberal Arts welcomes nontraditional students and recent high school graduates if they wish to pursue a liberal arts degree and meet the school’s requirements for admission. Students can be admitted before they have selected a major if their general interests lie in the humanities or social sciences.

Students not eligible for direct admission to the School of Liberal Arts can indicate their interest in a major in the school by dual admission to University College and to a IU School of Liberal Arts department or program.

Many liberal arts students are transfer students coming from another college or university, another Indiana University campus, or another division of IUPUI. Procedures for transferring into the IU School of Liberal Arts and special arrangements for transfer students are described herein.
