Admissions Process: International Students

Please Read Before Setting Up Your Account

International students should not apply for a visa or make travel plans until receiving notification of admissions via email from the Graduate School. Obtaining the necessary U.S. immigration documents (I-20 or DS-2019) from the Office of International Students and Scholars (ISS) is a multistep process.

Please initiate this process by following the instructions in the "U.S. Immigration Document" section, located on the second page of the Graduate School admissions email. This section of the Graduate School email also contains a link to the International Graduate Student Notification of Intent (NOI) Form. The ISS office advises international students on all matters relating to U.S. citizenship and immigration. You may contact the ISS office by email at, by phone at 765-494-5770, or at website:

Important Notice (Applicable to only Full-Time MBA and MSHRM Students):

International Student Orientation (Mandatory) will be held from August 7-8, 2017
