Indiana State has relationships with universities all around the world, opening up opportunities for summer, semester, or year-long study abroad experiences. Tuition is usually the same, so cost should never be a reason not to give it a try.
LEAP is a by invitation only program for entering freshmen. This program provides instruction in the basic skills needed to succeed in college. In addition to receiving this preparation, students who successfully complete LEAP will earn 3 college credits.

No Application Fee In September!
Here at State, we take College Go Week to extremes! We think waiving the application fee for a week is such a good idea that we extend it for the entire month of September. That’s right, when you submit your application in the month of September, we will waive the $25 application fee.
Who’s eligible? Really, just about anyone applying for undergraduate admission to begin in the fall semester or summer. Even though this is a State of Indiana initiative, we also extend the fee waiver to out-of-state resident who are U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents. (Note that international and graduate applications are not eligible for the waived fee.)
In addition to saving $25, here are other good reasons to apply early:
- You won’t miss any important scholarship deadlines.
- You can have more free time to enjoy your senior year.
- Your parents, teachers, and guidance counselors will stop asking if you’ve applied yet.
- You can start wearing BLUE with personal pride.
