Admitted Student Days

You're in! Let's make it official.

Congratulations on being admitted to Herron School of Art and Design at IUPUI. Herron is a dynamic, inspiring place to be, and Admitted Student Days are a chance to experience student life and all that awaits you in downtown Indianapolis.

Admitted Student Days are centered on hands-on workshops where you can learn creative techniques from our accomplished faculty, whether online or in our studios. Meeting professors and other admitted students will give you a window into Herron's life and culture.

And if you haven't already done so, Admitted Student Days are a perfect opportunity to confirm your enrollment by paying your IUPUI admissions deposit.


These events are free and open to admitted students and their families.
