Description of the video:
Hi I'm Chris Crews, Director of Admission at IU Southeast. We're happy that you're here and we're happy that you're considering Indiana University Southeast as your college choice.
Before we begin I'd like to make you aware of an update to our admission standards. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic causing the postponement of SAT and ACT testing, we are waiving these test scores from our admission requirements for summer and fall 2020 enrollment.
In this video we'll begin with some general information about IU Southeast and why we're a great choice. From there we'll cover all the resources available to students to ensure their success. Then we'll discuss all the different ways that you can get involved on campus and will conclude with how to start the application process. During this video I'll provide you with several web addresses you can find all those URLs below this video. Let's get started.
IU Southeast offers the most affordable 4-year degree in the region. Our banded tuition means that you pay the same tuition for 12 to 18 credit hours, which gives you the flexibility to add a minor or a second major. The IU Southeast campus has been ranked second safest campus in Indiana, seventh safest in the U.S. The campus is policed by IUPD and has the same authority as any other police force. They maintain a presence 24/7. We offer in-state tuition for seven counties in Kentucky; Jefferson, Bullitt, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer, Meade, and Trimble counties. Although keys money is only applicable to Kentucky schools we are more affordable without keys money than most Kentucky schools are with keys money.
You'll graduate with a prestigious IU degree. It doesn't matter what I you campus you attend you are an IU student no matter what. Your diploma won't say New Albany, regional, or Southeast. It will say Indiana University because you are a student of Indiana University. If you haven't already, we encourage you to explore any of these resources for program and campus information. If you'd like general information about a program or campus activity emailed to you, first try our custom view book at CustomViewBook.ius.edu. Follow the prompts and customized information will be emailed directly to you. If you're interested in more specific information, there's a lot of really useful information on our website, ius.edu.

To help ensure your success, we offer several academic and student support services and resources. Our academic support services include academic advising, an IU-supported library, a Writing Center, mathematics, science, and language labs, along with free tutoring an adult student center and study abroad programs. Our student support services include a Mentoring Program, Counseling Services, Disability Services, our Career Development Center, and student central, your one-stop-shop for financial aid, bursar and registrar needs. You can do everything, from registering for classes, paying your tuition bill and getting questions answered about financial aid. ACES, which stands for Advising Center for Exploratory Students, is where students with undecided majors are directed. ACES help students with an undecided major decide which major to pursue. They also help students who would like to change their major, but need help deciding what to study. ACES also helps students who aren't sure how the major they are considering prepares them for future employment. Don't feel pressured to choose a major before applying. If you don't know what to do or what to study ACES advisers have you covered.
Just because IU Southeast is a small campus that doesn't mean we're small on campus experiences. We have over 100 clubs and organizations available for students. Our Greek life includes eight fraternities and sororities. Our Greek organizations are very focused on community service. Yearly they host several events and fundraisers for good causes and local nonprofits. We also offer academic groups like women in computing, the marketing club, and hobby groups like the gamers society and bass-fishing. If you can't find the organization you're looking for, start your own. All you need are four other friends interested in joining and a staff or faculty member to sponsor it. Then the office of campus life will assist you with establishing your very own club.
IU Southeast athletics bost seven NAIA Division teams including men's basketball, tennis, and baseball and women's basketball, tennis, softball, and volleyball. We also have cheerleading and pep band for those who would like to cheer on the Grenadiers. For those who just want to have fun, we have several intramural sports including flag football, basketball, wiffle ball, sand volleyball, and more.
At IU Southeast we offer on-campus housing with all the comforts of home. Our apartment style residence halls include dorms that are fully furnished with fully equipped kitchens. They also include internet, cable, free laundry, and computer and study rooms. You must be an admitted student before you can apply for housing.

In the 2017-2018 academic year IU Southeast awarded eighteen point five million dollars in gift aid. In the same year nearly two thousand eight hundred students were awarded approximately eleven million dollars in scholarship funds. Here's some quick facts about financial aid and scholarships. The general scholarship application allows you to apply for over two hundred different scholarships. It opens October 1st of every year. You just need to fill out one application and you're submitted for all available scholarships covered by the general scholarship application. FAFSA opens October 1st every year and our school code is zero zero one eight one seven. Before applying for scholarships you must be an admitted student. Check out our website to review the eligibility requirements and deadlines for the automatic scholarships for incoming freshmen. Although tuition and fees are covered for 21st century scholars, if you're a twenty-first century scholar you can still apply for scholarships to cover things like housing, meal plans, books, and a laptop.
Are you ready to begin your application? First go to IUS.edu/apply. You'll see that several different student types are listed in the left side navigation, as well as when you scroll down the page. Incoming freshmen are those of you who are graduating or have graduated from high school and are ready to begin your college career. Please keep in mind that you can have transfer credits and still be considered an incoming freshman. This is the case for students who would like to transfer dual credit high school classes to IU Southeast. For example even if you're in sophomore standing because of the amount of credits you've completed in high school, you would still be considered a freshman Transfer students have at least 12 credit hours from another college or university who would like to transfer their credits to an IU Southeast program. Returning adult students are students who'd like to either start or finish a bachelor's degree however they do not have the minimum 12 hours needed to be considered a transfer student. The application process is broken down into steps. You'll find the admission requirements listed on your relevant student type page. We're also showing them here. As you'll see admission standards and requirements for incoming freshmen, transfer students, and returning adult students, are similar but there are some slight differences.
As mentioned earlier due to the Coronavirus pandemic canceling many spring SAT and ACT tests. We are not requiring these test scores for summer and fall 2020 enrollment. In addition starting with fall 2021 applications ACT and SAT scores will be optional however we still encourage students to take the SAT or ACT so they don't miss out on possible scholarship opportunities. To begin the application process click step one. For freshmen, you'll find a video detailing how to apply on this page. After watching the video, click apply online to begin your application. Transfer students can simply click apply online, returning adult students will also be directed to the application. If you have any questions, please note the contact information on your screen. If you're unsure if your questions should be directed to student central or to housing, feel free to contact the Office of Admissions and we'll direct you to the correct person. Academic advisors are available by appointment and you must be admitted to IU Southeast before you can schedule an appointment. However, prior to being admitted the Office of Admissions is happy to provide unofficial transcript evaluations. You can find all the links mentioned in this video listed below.
