In general, the basic requirements for admission include completion of a college preparatory curriculum at an accredited high school, proof of academic achievement, and successful completion of the SAT or ACT.

The standard FAFSA form is the first step in the financial aid process for students at the University of Indianapolis, with the usual deadline for full consideration falling in early March.
