High School and First-Time College Students

You’ll actually apply for admission online through the IUPUI Office of Admissions. We encourage you to apply for direct admission, which allows you to enter IUPUI as a Luddy Indianapolis student your very first semester. To pursue direct admission, you must list your intended major on your IUPUI admissions application and meet eligibility criteria.

Another option is to start in IUPUI’s University College, where you’ll begin taking courses, declare your major and then certify into the Luddy Indianapolis early in your college career. But that doesn’t stop you from immediately joining one of our student groups, meeting with our advisors and becoming part of the informatics community.


All high school and first-time college students will have the option to apply without submitting test scores.

Please make sure to review IUPUI’s admission requirements through the Office of Admissions.

Direct admission

Incoming freshmen may apply for direct admission to the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering in Indianapolis at any point between August 1 and May 1 of their senior year.
