After you apply to IFS, you can expect the following communications:
Early April - Welcome Email from IFS: In early April, you will receive a welcome email notifying you of your acceptance into IFS.
Early June - Course enrollment & advising communications: In early June, you will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with course enrollment & advising information.
Early July - IFS Professor & TA Communications: in early July, you will receive communications from your IFS Professor and Teaching Assistant Intern that includes a welcome, course meeting times, locations, expectations, and textbook information.
Your first week of IFS will be virtual. Be available for an intensive experience! IFS virtual instruction will be very different from high school online coursework. You will have a series of online lectures, tours, events, and experiences requiring your full attention. Students holding part-time jobs, or maintaining busy non-academic calendars report finding balancing the workload very difficult.
Tips from IFS students:
"Say goodbyes to relatives and friends before you start IFS. Even though it is virtual, it is your first week with Indiana University!"
"Plan to finish any outside activities including work and volunteering before virtual week with IFS begins."
