Graduate Office Events & Programs
The IUPUI Graduate Office is working hard to provide a calendar of events that prospective & current graduate students find beneficial during their journey towards graduate education. Be sure to check back here often for upcoming events!

Getting Into Graduate School Information Sessions
The IUPUI Graduate Office hosts Getting into Graduate School information sessions four times per year that focus on making the decision to go to graduate school and understanding the components of the application package. The sessions are free and take place in IUPUI’s University Library, Room 1126. Registration is required and space is limited.
Graduate admissions at IUPUI is decentralized, which means each program has its own requirements and makes its own admission decisions so the session will not address any specific program but rather provide a general overview. You do not need to be an IUPUI student or plan on applying to an IUPUI graduate program to attend an information session.
The 2018 Information Sessions will be held Thursday, January 25 from 4-5 p.m.; Wednesday, April 18 from noon – 1 p.m.; Thursday, June 21 from 4-5 p.m.; and Tuesday, September 18 from 4-5 p.m. Register here. Because the same information is repeated for each session, only select one date.
Accelerate Acceptance: The Secrets of Graduate School Admissions Speed Sessions
Learn about topics related to graduate school admissions from IUPUI, Ball State, and Purdue graduate admissions experts in a speed-dating type model.
