Former Herron Students

Apply to Herron as a returning student

Students who are interested in returning to Herron must complete the IUPUI application for returning students. Upon completion of the application, students must send the IUPUI Office of Undergraduate Admissions all transcripts from each of the colleges that they have attended since IUPUI.

Submitting your portfolio (if required)

In some situations, students previously enrolled at Herron may not have to submit a portfolio. Consideration for portfolio exemption is determined on a case-by-case basis. Ask an admissions advisor if you wish to be considered for portfolio exemption.
