Application Fee Waiver

We will waive the application fee for students who demonstrate financial need or apply during one of our campus visit opportunities sponsored by the Office of Admissions. You can request a fee waiver by:

  • Submitting an ACT, College Board, or NACAC fee waiver request form through your high school counselor.
  • Having your high school counselor submit a request on school letterhead or from their official school email account.

Step 2: Submit Official Documents

Now that you have completed the IU East application whether online or by mail, your next step is to gather together your required documents and materials. This step is very important because only when we have all of the proper documentation can we provide you with an admission decision. Be sure to submit your documents through the proper channels to avoid any delays in the process.

Here is a checklist of the documents and items that you will need to submit. We recommend printing a copy for your records.


  1. An official high school transcript (this must be mailed in a sealed envelope from the high school or submitted electronically via your high school guidance office)
  2. Beginning 2021, IU East is Test Optional. The Applicant will be given the choice at the time of application if they wish to have their test scores considered as part of their application. Test scores are required for merit-based scholarships.
  3. If you are a Twenty-First Century Scholar or requested your application fee to be waived, please submit the waiver with the rest of your materials.
  4. If you earned college credit while in high school, submit an official transcript from each college or university (not necessary if you earned IU college credit).
