Direct Admission for First-Year Students

As a Bloomington Kelley Direct Admit, you will bypass the admissions requirements current IU students must meet to be accepted into the program. This means you will start working with Kelley academic and career advisors from the first day you arrive. Direct admission is only offered to first-year students who are entering in the fall semester. Students who matriculate in the spring semester, transfer students, and students not intending to major in a Kelley business degree are not eligible for direct admission.

Each year, qualified high school seniors are offered the opportunity to enter the Kelley School as first-year students.  To be eligible for Direct Admission for First-Year Students, students must:

  1. Be admitted, as a first-year student, to IU Bloomington for the Fall semester.
  2. List any business major as the intended major on the IU Bloomington application.
  3. Meet additional academic standards, as listed here.
