Preparing to apply

Start by discovering the undergraduate degree program that is the best fit for you. Prospective undergraduates to the school should apply for admission to one of our six bachelor’s degree programs.

What are the requirements for direct admission?

To determine eligibility for undergraduate admission, review the requirements that fit the type of student you will be.

As an incoming freshman to IUPUI, you’ll be eligible for direct admission to the School of Health & Human Sciences if all the following conditions are met.

  • You were admitted to IUPUI.
  • On your admissions application, you indicated one of our six undergraduate majors.
  • You earned a cumulative high school grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.

Also, when we review your application, you must have achieved one of the following:

  • Received minimum ACT composite score of 21.
  • Received minimum SAT score of 1080 (taken March 2016 or later) or 1000 (taken before March 2016 and not including the writing section).

If you don’t qualify for direct admission to our school you can still be admitted to IUPUI as a University College student. University College is a common starting point for incoming students. You’ll be able to take classes for your intended major and apply for admissions as an IUPUI student applicant when those admission standards are reached.

Whether you plan to enroll at IUPUI as an incoming freshman or a transfer student, as an international student you’ll apply through the Office of International Affairs.
