Apply to IU

How DACA students should apply to IU varies by campus.

  • At IU Bloomington DACA students need to submit an online application through the Office of International Services (OIS). Based on the answers provided to the questions on the application, DACA students will eventually be switched to a domestic applicant. This usually adds 2-3 weeks to the processing timeframe for the application. For specific details on residency status, contact the Registrar’s Office within Student Central at scu@indiana.edu
  • At IUPUI the application for freshmen or transfer students is online at enroll.iupui.edu A series of questions will be asked to determine the type of application you should complete. When asked for "country of citizenship" do NOT select United States if you are not a U.S. Citizen. When asked for your current/intended Visa type, select "Def-Action Childhood Arrivals." If you have any additional questions, contact daca@iupui.eduor contact Jasmine Rodriguez at rodrijas@iupui.edu, or 317-274-2252.
