Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have suspended or relaxed some admitted student requirements and extended decision and enrollment deposit deadlines. We recommend that you contact the colleges to which you have been accepted directly for the most updated and accurate information.

Indiana University Bloomington, founded in 1820, is a public, comprehensive institution. The most common reasons for students choosing IU over other similar schools are the reputation of its academic programs, flexibility in curricula, especially for exploratory students, a smorgasbord of academic and extracurricular opportunities, access to faculty and current technology, beauty of campus; an institutional philosophy of personal attention, a friendly and diverse college town and the promise of a true college experience. Programs are offered through the College of Arts and Sciences; the Division of Allied Health Sciences; and the Schools of Business, Education, Dentistry, Health/Physical Education/Recreation, Music, Nursing, Optometry, Public and Environmental Affairs, and Social Work. Its 1,878-acre campus is located in the city of Bloomington, 45 miles from Indianapolis.
