Future freshmen, apply for direct admission
You may be eligible for direct admission to our school for fall 2022 if you meet each of the following:
- Select one of our School of Public Health majors as your intended major on your IU Admissions application.
- Earn an SAT score of 1280 (combined reading and math) and/or an ACT score of 27 (composite)
- Earn a GPA of at least 3.5 (on a 4.0 scale)
If you do not meet all criteria or if you apply to IU without ACT/SAT scores under the test-optional guidelines*, you will be reviewed on other aspects of your application, including performance in academic coursework, quality of application essay(s), and additional activities and achievements.
*To find out if this is the right path for you, learn more about our test-optional admissions policy.
It is important to apply by the November 1 deadline if you are applying for direct admission.
Apply for admission through the IU Bloomington Office of Admissions. If you are eligible, you'll receive an offer of direct admission from the School of Public Health-Bloomington 4–6 weeks after you've been admitted to IU Bloomington.
If you update your IU application with new academic or major information, we will reconsider you for direct admission through April 1. This may include new test scores, a change in major, or other achievements.
Direct admission criteria for fall 2023 will be posted in July of 2022
