For Incoming & Prospective Students

We're excited to welcome you this fall!

We are going to help you get the most out of your first year at IU East.

IU East specializes in a flexible experience! For many years, IU East has offered a blended experience of on-campus and online courses for our students. Although some formerly on-campus classes may be moved to online - your experience will be a great one. You'll have more flexibility in how you learn and engage with your peers and faculty. You can listen to a lecture in the middle of the arboretum or while sipping coffee at your favorite study spot.

Faculty and staff are going to be accessible in more ways than ever—Zoom, email, Canvas, and for on-campus appointments. Our faculty have been teaching on-campus and online for years...We’re ready for you!
