IUPUI Bulletins » Schools » liberal-arts » Admission » Admission


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 must select a major within Liberal Arts before they can be admitted.

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

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.

Academic Advising

The Liberal Arts academic advising model centers on a team approach with faculty mentors and academic advisors. Each student is assigned a faculty mentor and an academic advisor. Faculty mentors focus primarily on mentoring students according to their academic and career interests. Academic advisors are responsible for general education and major advising. Academic advisors are located in the Miriam Z. Langsam Office of Student Affairs, Cavanaugh Hall room 401.
