Welcome back to IU East!  Whether you have been away one year or twenty, we are excited that you are ready to return to IU East, and we want to help you accomplish your educational goals. If you have been out less than one year (two semesters - exception of summer terms) or are returning from military leave, you do not need to apply for re-admittance, but instead you may contact the Office of Student Records for reactivation. All other returning students need to...

  1. Apply for Re-admittance to Indiana University East.  Please complete the online re-admittance form and click the submit button on the bottom of the form. 
  2. If you attended another college or university, since you last attended IU East, then you MUST also include an unofficial copy of that institution's transcript with your application for re-admittance.

  3. Your application for re-admittance and unofficial transcript(s) will be reviewed, and a decision will be rendered by the IU East Readmit Committee within five working days of receipt.  Decisions by the Readmit Committee are final.  You will receive an email from with information regarding the re-admit decision and your "next steps."

  4. If you are readmitted, and you attended another college or university since you last attended IU East, you will need to have that institution send a copy of your "official" transcript to the IU East Office of Admission for a thorough course-by-course transfer credit evaluation.
