Direct Admission

An honor for the school’s top incoming first year students

Each year outstanding incoming freshmen are offered direct admission to the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design. Benefits of direct admission are:

  • You are an official Eskenazi student (all other students begin as University Division students)
  • You will work with an advisor in your major right away (rather than beginning with a University Division advisor)
  • You have the option to declare a second major or a minor in your first year

You will be offered direct admission to the school if:

  • You have been admitted to IUB, and you indicated a major in the Eskenazi School on your application
  • You earned a cumulative high school GPA of at least 3.6 on a 4.0 scale

If you meet these criteria, we will notify you via email that you qualify for direct admission about six weeks after you are admitted to IUB.
