Beginning the college admissions process can seem like a daunting task. However, most schools have a similar checklist of what needs to be completed before students can be admitted. Follow this general step-by-step guideline and you’ll be well on your way!
1. Submit Your Application
Submitting an application is the first step in the admissions process. You will also need to provide your transcripts and test scores. Students can apply as early as the summer after their junior year of high school. Once an application is submitted, a student will be contacted by an admissions representative to assist throughout the remainder of the admissions process.

2. Submit Your Deposit
This is one of the most important steps in the admissions process. At IWU your deposit allows you to register for classes and secures your spot on campus. Do you have your eye on a particular residence hall? Housing priority is based on when a student submits their deposit, so get it in early!

3. Calculate Your Costs
The cost of higher education is an important factor when making your college decision. Many colleges will provide a way to receive an early estimate of your financial aid package. Make sure you fill out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). 100% of IWU undergrad students who file FAFSA receive some type of financial aid.
4. Attend Orientation
Every school has some sort of orientation for new students. At IWU incoming freshmen and transfers arrive on campus nearly a week before the rest of the student body. This week of orientation is an intentional time for you to get acclimated to college life. Between meeting in small groups, learning your way around campus, and getting to know your new classmates, you should be ready to start college at the top of your game!
