Admission decisions are made by the specific graduate program, which will inform you about any decisions. Most departments will supply applicants with their Student Identification Number upon admission.

U.S. citizens and international students use the same application. International students must apply online.

For most programs, the application fee is $70 for domestic and international students. The Kelley School of Business master’s program operates on a different fee schedule.

The online application fee must be paid via credit card. Applications are not reviewed until the fee is paid.

International applicants must apply online. In most cases, international applicants should mail supporting documentation such as transcripts to:

Office of International Admissions
Indiana University
Ferguson International Center Room 100
330 N Eagleson Ave
Bloomington, IN 47405

However, some programs are exceptions. Before applying, review the application information for prospective graduate students on the Office of International Services (OIS) website to ensure that you follow the proper procedure and send all required materials.

If you have a bachelor’s degree and wish to study on a non-degree basis without necessarily concentrating in a single department, you can be admitted as a continuing non-degree student.

Additional requirements

In addition to the basic information, many departments will require GRE scores or other tests associated with that program, a personal statement, a transcript from all institutions attended, and letters of reference. Check with your specific program or department for specific requirements.

The personal statement is an opportunity for you to tell us about your academic and career direction and goals.

Be sure that you answer the question that is asked on the application. Make a case for why you will fit into a particular program and what you will be able to contribute rather than just what you hope to receive.

Please note: each department sets their own recommendation requirements. Please see the graduate eApp for more information.

Start asking for recommendations as early as possible. It can sometimes take professors a long time to complete a recommendation, and they may need a gentle reminder of their commitment to you.
