Where to send your documents

Please mail official or certified hard copies to:

University of Indianapolis
Office of Admissions
1400 E. Hanna Avenue
Indianapolis, IN 46227

Photocopies or scanned documents

We often can make a provisional assessment based on scanned or photocopied documents; however, official or certified hard copies of documents are required before a final admission decision can be made.

A certified copy is a hard photocopy that has been stamped and signed by an official of the institution issuing the document, of a governmental education office, or of an EducationUSA office.

A scan or a photocopy of a certified copy is not official.  We require documents with the original stamp and signature.

Application deadline

Applications are accepted at any time; however, our recommended admission deadlines are:

  • Feb. 1 for August enrollment 
  • Oct. 1 for January enrollment

Transferring credits from your previous college/university outside the U.S.

Students who would like to receive credit (exemptions) for courses taken at colleges or universities outside the United States should submit their transcripts to a current NACES member agency such as World Education Services or Education Credential Evaluators.  A detailed, course-by-course report is required.  This report can take several weeks or more to obtain.  After a student is accepted for admission, our Registrar’s Office will examine the credential evaluation report to determine transfer credit.  The student may be asked to submit course descriptions in English or to consult with a faculty member regarding specific course content.  Our Registrar’s Office will send a list of transferred courses to the student’s address of record.

In general, courses (C- grade or above) taken at institutions “recognized” by the government in that country will receive transfer credit.  However, in order for any particular UIndy course to be waived, there must be a corresponding course (similar in content, level and goals) taken at the non-U.S.  institution. In addition, at least 30 credit hours and at least one third of major requirement credit hours must be completed at the University of Indianapolis in order to receive a UIndy degree.

Except when applying to a health science program, a credential evaluation report is generally not required for admission to the University of Indianapolis.  It is generally required only for transfer credit evaluation.
