You are a first-year beginner if you expect to graduate from high school during the current school year, have graduated from high school (or met college readiness standards for a state-recognize equivalency) and taken no more than twelve hours of college credit after high school graduation.
Beginning with the 2021 term, IU Southeast has adopted a “test-optional” admission policy allowing students to choose whether they would like to have their SAT or ACT scores considered as part of their admission review process.
Your admission to IU Southeast is considered primarily on the basis of high school curriculum and GPA. Indiana students are expected to have completed or be on track to complete, at minimum, Indiana's Core 40 diploma. Applicants from outside Indiana should have completed or be on track to complete 26 "college prep" units. Some students may wish to submit standardized test scores as a demonstration of academic potential beyond high school performance. Test scores may be required for select merit-based scholarships. Review the information below to learn more and decide on the best path for you.
Your admission will be considered primarily on the basis of high school curriculum and GPA. While test scores could help us better understand more about you as an individual, preference is not given to those who submit scores over those who do not.
Our review process is designed so that you won’t be penalized for your test scores. Review is based primarily on GPA and high school curriculum.
No problem! When prompted on our application, simply indicate that you do not wish to have scores considered in the admission review process.
Beginning August 1, 2020 you will have the option to self-report your test scores as part of your admission application. Self-reporting allows applicants who wish to have their standardized test scores considered as part of their admissions review to self-report their scores instead of requiring that scores be sent from official testing agencies. After admission, you will be asked to verify your scores from the official testing agencies or your high school transcript. Your scores are expected to match or be higher than those self-reported during the admission process.
Students who have attended a school with non-traditional evaluation methods where alpha or numeric grades are not assigned are encouraged to submit SAT or ACT scores. After admission, student athletes may be asked to submit test scores as one way to demonstrate eligibility through the NAIA Eligibility Center (check with Athletics staff for more information – firstname.lastname@example.org). In addition, some merit-based scholarships may require the submission of SAT or ACT scores. International students also have separate requirements for English language proficiency.
Yes. IU Southeast offers multiple options for scholarship qualification. Visit our scholarships page to learn more.
New SAT or ACT scores can be submitted at any time either through the testing agency or by submitting an updated high school transcript containing your scores.
