If you're a high school senior, get to know these important dates. Print them out, bookmark them—maybe do both. We don’t want you to miss a single deadline in the scholarship process, especially November 1.
Timing is everything
First day to complete and submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Many scholarship and financial aid options require you to have a FAFSA on file.
Early action (non-binding) admission and scholarship deadline. To be considered for IU Academic Scholarships and for the Selective Scholarship Application (SSA), you must submit a complete application for admission by November 1.
Deadline to submit updated test scores for IU Academic Scholarships. If you met the November 1 IU application deadline, January 15 is the last day to submit updated test scores (directly from the testing agency) to be considered for IU Academic Scholarships.
Deadline to submit the SSA—including recommendation letters. If you were invited to complete the SSA, February 1 is the deadline for IU to receive all your SSA materials, including letters from your two recommenders.
Priority deadline to file your FAFSA. Many scholarship and financial aid options require you to have a FAFSA on file, so we recommend completing yours as soon as possible.
Deadline to reserve your seat at IU. If you are starting at IU in fall, you must declare your intent to enroll by May 1. Your non-refundable $100 deposit will be credited toward your first-semester tuition expenses.
