About

Get started with IFS

Take advantage of everything Indiana University has to offer with the Intensive Freshman Seminars program. Students who participate in IFS have the unique opportunity to move to campus early, complete a three credit hour class before the fall semester begins, work with one of IU’s leading faculty members, and experience some of the exciting activities at Indiana University and in the city of Bloomington. During the two and a half week program, students gain experience in a rigorous college classroom, learn faculty expectations for college-level work, and create lasting friendships with other incoming and current IU students.
