Please note: Admission to the PIE does not guarantee admission to IUPUI or any of its degree programs. To be an undergraduate or graduate student at IUPUI, you must make a separate (different) application.



The application deadline for students already in the U.S. is one week before the beginning of each session. Students coming from abroad on an F-1 visa should apply as early as possible. We recommend allowing at least 8 weeks to obtain an F-1 visa.
