Application Requirements

Applications to Interdisciplinary studies programs (either MIS or Graduate Certificate) are submitted via this on-line process: MIS Online Application

All of the material listed below will be submitted via this link; we list them here for your information:

1. Graduate Record Exam (GRE)

Any student with an undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or above will be exempt from taking graduate testing.

Note: other graduate admissions tests will also be accepted (e.g., GMAT, LSAT)

Note: a voucher for reduction in fees for the GRE is available. Check with the Financial Aid office for further info and qualifications.

2. Three letters of recommendation.

The on-line application process will request mail and e-mail addresses of your references and it will automatically send them an email requesting a recommendation. It is in your best interest to (a) warn your references that the e-mail will be coming and (b) ask people to write letters who can speak to your ability to succeed in a graduate program. Former professors make better references than relatives or friends.

3. You will be asked to upload a statement of personal and educational objectives:

  • Why do you wish to study in the Master in Interdisciplinary Studies program?
  • What your objectives are in so doing?
  • Indicate major and minor areas of interest for your coursework in the MIS program.
  • What strengths and weaknesses do you bring to this kind of graduate study?

4. All undergraduate transcripts--complete and official.

You will be asked to list all previous schools attended, but it is your responsibility to contact the schools for official transcripts. Note that you do not need to request any IU system transcripts; the MIS office can access IU transcripts.

5. Application fee: $40.

In order to complete the on-line submission process you will have to make electronic payment of the application fee.

6. Conversation with the MIS Director.

Once the complete application has been received, the MIS director will contact you to schedule a conversation, either in-person or by telephone, at your convenience.

7. NOTICE: CAMPUS SAFETY AND SECURITY

University Police, University Center North, Room UC 027 (812) 941-2400 In compliance with the federal Campus Security Act, IU Southeast produces a pamphlet containing information on campus safety and security that includes crime statistics information. The pamphlet is available upon request from the University Police or the University Police Website.
