Counselor and StudentWelcome!

As colleagues in education, we know that you need quick access to information that will help your students attain their goals. These pages are designed as a portal to assist high school guidance counselors, community college advisors, and agency representatives learn more about IU Southeast and understand the enrollment process.

When should your student apply?

IU Southeast uses a rolling admissions process. It generally takes us 3-4 weeks to process an application, so students should plan accordingly.

High School students may apply any time after their junior year. We recommend that they apply by the end of the fall semester of their senior year, but we will continue to accept applications in the spring and summer.

Transfer students who are currently enrolled at another college or university can apply at any time during their final term. Students can apply before they complete their current coursework – our admission decision will be based on their performance to date. Offers of admission will be contingent upon receipt of the final, official transcript and the successful completion of the student’s courses.

Students who are not currently enrolled in high school or college can apply at any time.

What happens next?

Admission Timeline: Students will be notified of our admission decision 3-4 weeks after submitting a complete application.

Scholarship Timeline: The first round of fall scholarship recipients will be notified in early April.

Financial Aid Timeline: For students admitted to the fall semester, the Office of Financial Aid will begin sending notifications about aid packages in early April. Spring and summer award notifications will go out on a rolling basis.

Housing Timeline: Students are selected on a “first come, first housed” basis, so students should apply for housing as soon as possible. For fall, the housing priority deadline is May 1. Housing assignments are made in June. Move-in day is usually scheduled for the Thursday before classes start. Students admitted to the spring semester or summer terms should contact the Office of Residence Life and Housing to check availability.

Registration Timeline: Students admitted to the fall and summer semesters will be invited to begin the registration process in March. Students admitted to the spring semester will be invited to begin the registration process in November.

Orientation Timeline: Fall Orientation usually occurs the Friday before classes start. Spring Orientation will be offered several times between November and January.
