Application process for freshman

Step 1

All freshman applicants to the Jacobs School of Music must first complete the Apply IU Application or the Coalition Application that serves as your application to both Indiana University and the Jacobs School of Music. There is a $145 application fee.

Applications received after the November 1 deadline will be accepted on a case-by-case basis, depending on space availability. We do not have a preference for either application, so choose whichever you’d prefer:
