Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov. Be sure to indicate IUPUI’s school code (001813) when filling out the 2020-21 FAFSA. The FAFSA becomes available October 1 each year and will use the tax information from 2018. Using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to complete your application will speed-up processing time and, if selected for verification, reduce the amount of paperwork your student needs to return to the Office of Student Financial Services. By providing your FAFSA information earlier, we will be able to provide financial aid notifications starting in late December for newly admitted incoming students. The priority deadline is March 10. For more information, contact the Office of Student Financial Services at (317) 274-4162 or visit studentcentral.iupui.edu.
Scholarships are available to IUPUI students from many different sources. The Indiana University scholarship general application is available through One.IU by searching on scholarships. IUPUI awards scholarships to students in recognition of academic achievement, leadership, community service and under-represented populations. Be sure to check with your academic school at IUPUI for their scholarship opportunities. Also, encourage your student to apply for scholarships available in the community and with your employer. Other great resources are collegeboard.com/parents or fastweb.com. Deadlines will vary for each scholarship.
Incoming freshmen admitted for the fall term are required to submit a non-refundable enrollment deposit of $100 to formally accept their offer of admission to IUPUI. Upon enrolling, this deposit will be credited to their tuition. Students who are Indiana 21st Century Scholars or receiving select scholarships are exempt from paying the deposit, but must request their waiver online. Pay the deposit today, request a waiver, or review frequently asked questions at iupui.edu/deposit. Payment or waiver request must be received in order to place a reservation for the Student Orientation Program. For more information, contact the Office of Admissions at (317) 274-4591 or visit admissions.iupui.edu.
Follow the steps listed on the screen. *Please note that if your student created an IUPUI login to track their admission status, your student will need to login to One.IU and click Create Additional Accounts or Email Management and follow the steps on the screen. If your student created a username and passphrase after being admitted, no further action is required. They can proceed with registering for orientation.
Email is IUPUI’s primary method of communication. Once your student has signed up for email, they will begin to receive messages and communication. Therefore, it is important your student checks their email frequently.

Your student will enroll two devices in Duo so they will never be without access to important IU systems, like One.IU, Canvas, and Box. Duo provides an additional layer of security when your student logs in, helping protect sensitive data and guard against increasingly sophisticated email and online scams (e.g., phishing attacks) that can leave them vulnerable to identity theft. Make sure your student has ready access to both devices they’ve enrolled in Duo.
