There’s an IU educational adventure waiting for you

There’s no need to wait until college to experience everything Indiana University has to offer. We offer dozens of year-round virtual and in-person precollege programs for K–12 students like you.

What is a precollege program?

Our precollege programs allow you to explore IU from at home or on campus. You’ll learn about and focus on subjects you love, together with people who have 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!
