Admission to IU

Most incoming freshmen admitted to Indiana University first enter the University Division, where they must complete a specific set of requirements if they are interested in gaining admittance to the College of Arts and Sciences. Although the University Division provides advising services, students who are considering pursuing a degree from the College should also meet, early in their time at IU, with the advisor from any department(s) that offers a major, minor, or certificate that the student thinks he or she may want to pursue. Also, a small number of incoming students with records of academic excellence may be invited to apply for Direct Admission to the College.
