At IU Northwest, we provide you with the tools and resources you need to succeed in college and life.

This includes award-winning faculty, academic and wellbeing support services, a vibrant campus life, hands-on career preparation, and more than 70 degree programs to choose from.

Now we are adding a free laptop to this list. All you have to do is enroll for the fall 2022 semester.

Next Steps

To enroll, you must find and contact your advisor to schedule an advising appointment. Your advisor will help you determine which classes you need to register for this fall. Once you have registered for fall classes, you are officially enrolled.
