Adult Students

If you're thinking about going back to school to earn a college degree, you'll find that IU Kokomo offers many advantages for adult students. We know that adult students often are managing family and work responsibilities as well as studies, so we provide services to help you succeed in college. You'll also find that our outstanding faculty appreciates the maturity and life experience that adult students bring to the classroom.

Admissions Requirements

  • You must have graduated from an Indiana high school or comparable out-of-state institution or have taken the GED. Those with a GED score of 62 or higher may apply for unconditional admission.
  • Academic Honor or Core 40 diploma or at least 30 college preparatory high school courses.
  • You should rank in the upper half of your high school class.
  • Students who have been out of high school for three or more years are not required to submit SAT or ACT scores. (see admissions for high school students if you are less than three years out of High School.)
  • If you are a previous IU Kokomo student, update your information by filling out the online application as a returning student and schedule an appointment with the Office of Student Success and Advising at 765/455-9405.

If you do not meet the above criteria, you may be eligible for conditional admission. Please contact the Office of Admissions for more details.
