Student Spotlight

“I chose IUPUC because it is close to home and affordable. Also because it’s small enough that it reminds me of my high school. The class sizes are small which allows personalized attention from faculty and staff.” 

Amber Hill, Class of 2016
Business major with a concentration in management

Who Can Apply

Nearly 2,300 full-time and part-time students of all ages and backgrounds take classes at IUPUC each year. They range from high school students pursuing early college credit to recent high school graduates and young adults who have been out of high school for a few years.

Others may be international students.

Students at IUPUC can pursue first or second bachelor degrees or a master's degree. In addition, students may take courses on a topic of personal interest without planning to pursue a degree.
