|NCAA Compliance Information|
Students interested in participating in intercollegiate athletics at IUPUI should be aware of the process of applying for admission to the university as well as the NCAA requirements for eligibility.
Admissions Standards for Student-Athletes
NCAA Division I initial-eligibility requirements include a high school degree with a minimum gpa in a successfully completed core curriculum which include at least 14 academic courses (also known as "core" courses) in 2005, 2006 and 2007. The completed core curriculum must include 16 academic courses in 2008.
An entering freshman must achieve an index that involves specific SAT or ACT scores that match or exceed a specific core gpa.
The NCAA uses the Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse to review all high school records for entering freshmen who have no previous college attendance. The Clearinghouse determines whether or not an entering freshman has met the requirements for competition and receipt of athletics-related financial aid.
Prospective International Student-Athletes are required to complete Initial Eligibility Clearinghouse Application For Foreign Student-Athletes. This application process is required for determining first year eligibility at NCAA Division I member institutions.
IUPUI's Office of International Affairs provides many services for students from abroad.
All IUPUI athletic teams are encouraged to participate in community service activities or projects throughout the academic year. The university believes such initiatives benefit both the student-athlete and the community. Recent projects include working with "at risk" elementary school students, painting and clean-up work at a community facility through the United Way Day of Caring and sponsoring a book drive for America Reads.
Transfer Student Admission Standards
Transfer students must meet specific NCAA regulations in order to compete. For more information on the specific requirements, visit the NCAA web site.

The recruiting calendar describes the dead periods, evaluation periods, quiet periods and contact periods for various sports at IUPUI.
Upon being accepted to IUPUI, applicants will be notified regarding placement testing requirements. Freshmen are required to take placement tests while transfer students may be required to take tests if they are not transferring courses in Math or English. Sign up for placement testing as soon as possible. Placement tests are taken at the Union Building Room G015. Placement tests completed after April 30 may cause delays in the registration process.
Orientation for New Students
IUPUI requires all new students to attend Orientation. If at all possible, you should complete Orientation in June. The coaching staff will inform you of dates available to you to make an Orientation appointment. The last step in Orientation is registration for the term so it is important you register as early as possible. Any required Placement Examinations must be completed prior to Orientation.
In addition, all student-athletes are required to participate in Student-Athlete Orientation at the start of the semester. At this orientation you will be given complete details regarding expectations for student-athletes as well as completing a number of forms required by IUPUI and the NCAA.
