How to qualify for direct admission

Admissions for students starting in August 2025

Admissions information for the class entering in 2025 will be posted by August 1, 2024. Students who are successful in the Hutton Honors College are excited about ideas, eager to try new things, and keenly motivated for broad, interdisciplinary study. Our students come from all across campus--be they Accounting majors or Political Science specialists, future physicians or aspiring opera performers, they are united by their love of study and their enthusiasm for learning new things.

Students who want to be considered for admission to the Hutton Honors College (HHC) should complete their IU Bloomington application by November 1. 

Scholarship opportunities

Incoming freshmen who apply to IU Bloomington by November 1 and qualify for direct admission to the Hutton Honors College are eligible to apply for the Hutton Honors College Scholarship. Continuing students may be eligible to apply for additional scholarship opportunities. For more information, see Scholarships and Grants & Awards.

Evaluators consider all factors of an application, with greatest emphasis placed on grades earned in academic courses; performance in honors, dual-credit, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced Placement courses; extracurricular activities; other achievements.

Experience a day as a Hutton Honors Student

When you are admitted to the Hutton Honors College, you are invited to spend a day with a Hutton student to get an intimate look into life at IU. Get a look into classes, tour a residence hall, and learn what it is like to be a college student at Indiana University.
