Apply As a High School Student

Leaving behind the halls of your high school can be intimidating. Deciding where to go to college, figuring out what to major in, wondering how to make friends and get involved – it can be a lot to process! If you’re a current high school student and you’ve been wondering about Indiana University Kokomo as an option for your college choice, we think you’re going to like it here!

We have over 60 degrees and programs for you to choose from. Our class sizes are around 20, which means you’ll get to know your peers and your professors. In fact, you’ll be known on a first-name basis and receive personalized attention and mentorship. We also have a thriving student life where you’ll form relationships that last a lifetime.  

Interested in getting out and experiencing the world? We believe each and every student that steps foot on our campus deserves the chance to explore and learn outside the classroom, too. Our Kokomo Experience and You program, or KEY, will take you out in the world where you’ll attend conferences, talk with alumni who are working in your desired field, and more. Past KEY experiences have included trips to Amsterdam, Yellowstone National Park, and Charlotte, just to name a few.

All this for $7,800 a year which means you’ll graduate with an IU degree and minimal student loan debt. Take a look around and see for yourself.
