Explore our virtual precollege options
As a result of the necessary discouragement of visitors to campus, precollege programs for summer 2020 are now virtual. Find a virtual precollege program that fits your interests and experience IU from home.
What is a precollege program?
Our precollege programs allow you to spend time on campus learning about and focusing on subjects you love, surrounded by people with similar interests. Which is what college is all about.
Learn to build robots. Unlock the secret to success in the business world. Immerse yourself in the world of music and dance. Or take your academic journey in a new direction by taking an IU class.
You’ll also get a sneak peek at what college life is like—some programs even give you the opportunity to live on campus in a residence hall!
I love doing ballet at IU. We’re in the same studio space as the college students and we even get to perform in a real show!Tori, Precollege Ballet student
