Your Success Story Starts Here
Indiana University Northwest is brimming with amazing students, just like you, who come from all walks of life. We are proud to be the most diverse IU campus.
While the majority of our students arrive as freshman after graduating from high school, not everyone is a traditional student. Thirty percent of our students are over the age of 25, and many are beginning college for the first time or returning to it after years in the workforce or another educational institution.
