Application Instructions

To Apply For Admission:

  • There are three ways to apply for admission to Indiana University School of Law—Indianapolis
    1. The preferred way is to complete the online application available through our web site at www.indylaw.indiana.edu.
    2. You may apply using the Law School Admissions Council's LSACD or LSACD on the web at www.lsac.org.
    3. You may complete a paper application form and mail it to the Admissions Office at the address above.
  • International applicants should use the online application. If completion of the online application is not possible, a separate international admission application must be completed in addition to the law school application. An international application form may be obtained by visiting www.iupui.edu/oia or by contacting the Admissions Office at the address above.
  • You are strongly encouraged to submit letters of recommendation through the LSAC letter of recommendation service.
  • A nonrefundable application fee of $45.00 ($55.00 for international applicants) must be paid with your application. If you apply using the online application, you must pay this fee with a credit card.
  • You are responsible for assuring that all application materials reach us by March 1 (or February 1 if you wish to be considered for the special summer program). The application will not be reviewed by the Admissions Committee until all documents have been received and the application fee has been paid. Paper applications should be mailed, not hand-carried, to the law school.
  • Please keep a copy of the application for your records. Notify the law school immediately and in writing if there are any changes in the information reported, particularly if you change your address.
  • Once accepted and prior to registration, entering students must arrange for their undergraduate schools to submit an official transcript showing the conferral of a baccalaureate degree. This transcript should be mailed to the Indiana University School of Law—Indianapolis. The official transcript must be a part of each law student's permanent file. Unfortunately, transcripts sent to LSDAS do not fulfill this requirement.
  • Because of the number of applications we receive each year, we cannot conduct individual interviews of applicants. We encourage you to make a strong written case for admission by including in your file letters of reference from employers or professors familiar with your work habits, writing, and analytical ability. In addition, we encourage you to write a short personal statement that describes your motivation for law study and expand upon any parts of your record or experience that need emphasis or clarification.
  • If you need information regarding loan programs or work-study programs, visit www.iupui.edu/~finaid or contact the Office of Student Financial Services, Cavanaugh Hall, Room 103, 425 University Boulevard, Indianapolis, IN 46202-5143, telephone (317) 274-4162, or e-mail finaid@iupui.edu.
