Your journey with IU begins here

Indiana University welcomes students from all over the world who have been displaced from their home country. We understand displaced persons may need extra support through the application process and beyond at IU.

Whether you're in the U.S. as an asylee, refugee, a newly naturalized citizen who came to the U.S. as a child, or even those outside the U.S. that have been displaced, we're here to help with your questions.

How we can help you

IU has designated a special team of professionals from across the university to provide a welcoming environment and comprehensive student services. We can assist you from before you start an application all the way through graduation if needed.

We are trained and ready to assist with barriers, like:

  • Disrupted and/or incomplete educational backgrounds
  • Missing, incomplete, and/or unavailable education credentials
  • Challenges navigating cultural and structural differences between the U.S. and other educational systems
  • Lack of awareness and access to available university resources
  • Limited or absent access to funding and affordable options for higher education
