Step 1: Complete an Application

How to Complete the Online Application

When you arrive at the application portal, you will be asked a few general questions to determine what kind of application you will be completing. Once the system correctly identifies your admission status as a Beginning International Student, you will be guided through a series of question.

The $60 application fee is required of all applicants and is non-refundable. You may make payment at the time you submit your electronic application by using your credit card.

Step 2: Submit Official Academic Record

You must submit official transcripts, including work already completed and work currently in progress. The records should show a complete list of courses taken, grades received and any diplomas or certificates earned. Transcripts should also indicate the number of credits awarded for each course or the number of hours of classroom, lecture, and laboratory and include information about the school's grading scale.

Applicants will receive information within 5 business days of submitting the application about how to submit supporting documents. You may upload copies of the official academic records through the IStart account. Original, official documents should then be sent to the Office of International Student Services directly from your secondary school.

If your official academic records are not issued in English, you must submit an English translation along with your official documents in the original language.  The accuracy of the translation must be certified by an appropriate officer at the issuing school, by an appropriate government officer at the ministry of education, or by a U.S. educational advising center. If you need assistance, the center in your country can advise you on preparing your academic records for submission.
Step 3: English Language Proficiency Documentation

If English is not your native language, you must demonstrate proficiency in English before you can be admitted to IU Kokomo. While TOEFL is the preferred method of documentation, there are many ways to meet this requirement.

*Please note that all test results must be sent to IU Kokomo directly from the Educational Testing Service (ETS). Indiana University Kokomo does not accept hand-carried score reports.

Step 4: Immigration Documentation

Submit a photocopy of your passport page showing your name and date of birth. If you are currently in the U.S., submit a photocopy of your I-94 Arrival/Departure Record and visa stamp.

Step 5: Documentation of Financial Support

If you are requesting an I-20 in order to obtain a student visa, you must submit documentation of financial support proving that sufficient funds are available to cover all study and living expense for the first year of study. Documentation must be less than 12 months old at the start of your study program and may be submitted in the following formats:

  • An original or certified true bank statement or scholarship letter.
  • Visit here to see our cost of attendance
  • Government-sponsored students must submit an official letter from the government specifying the terms of the scholarship and addressed to IU Kokomo.
