OnSite Make-up Days

Were you scheduled to meet with an IU South Bend Admissions Counselor but came down with the flu? Or, did you only learn that an Admissions Counselor was at your school for an OnSite after it was too late? Stop into the Office of Admissions at IU South Bend on the last Friday of every month (January 31, February 28, March 27, April 24, May 29, June 26, and July 31, 2020) between 9 AM and 4 PM EST with an official copy of your high school transcript and ACT or SAT scores, to have your application reviewed for admission on the spot! If you apply at an OnSite event, you are also automatically offered our Titan OnSite Scholarship worth $500 annually if you have a GPA of 3.0 or higher.

IU South Bend admission counselors travel all over the Michiana area for:

  • College/Career fairs for high school students
  • On-the-spot admission decisions at local high schools
