About IU Southeast

Academic Life

IU Southeast is a primarily a teaching institution where degreed faculty members invest time and effort in helping their students succeed as learners and leaders. The campus has grown it's graduate offerings in recent years, so now students living and working in the area can pursue cost-effective advanced degrees close to home in professional disciplines such as Business, Education, Nursing, and Mental Health Counseling; as well as classic Arts and Sciences disciplines like English and Criminal Justice. 

Graduate programs' adminsitration such as admissions, student support and advising, and curricular development are centered in the departmental offices in the schools that confer the degrees, thus developing a tight cadre of studens working alongside Ph.D. and community expert faculty. 

 Our academic calendar is divided into three semesters: fall, spring, and summer. Fall and spring are 15 weeks each (14 weeks of instruction and 1 exam week). Summer is a 12-week semester further divided into shorter sessions, to accommodate the intensive instruction and community-calendar sensitive needs of graduate students: 1 8-week session, 4 6-week sessions (two traditional and two online summer sessions called colloquially "Summer 1" and "Summer 2"), and three 4-week sessions. 

Classes are held from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m, although generally peak class time class is 9 AM to 2 PM.  Many graduate classes start at 4 or 5 PM to accommodate our working adult graduate students. Some programs hold classes on Saturday. IU Southeast currently does not host classes on Sunday. Classes are offered  in a variety of instruction modes, in-person, via synchronous video broadcast, completely asynchronous online, or a hybrid combination of these modes in the same class. 

Students are encouraged to enhance their academic experience by taking advantage of community learning experiences (practica, internships, and community service) and special research project opportunities
