Undergraduate Academic Programs


Direct Admission for First-Year Students

As an SPH-B Direct Admit, you will bypass the admission requirements required of most IU students. This means you will start working with SPH-B academic advisors and career coaches 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 an SPH-B undergraduate degree are not eligible for direct admission.

Each year, qualified high school seniors are offered the opportunity to enter the School of Public Health-Bloomington based on their high school performance. To be eligible for direct admission, first-year students must:

  1. Be admitted, as a first-year student, to IU Bloomington for the fall semester.
  2. List any School of Public Health major as the intended major on the IU Bloomington application.
  3. Meet additional academic standards detailed on our website.
