  • Criminal Activity Disclosure Policy

    IUPUI is committed to maintaining a safe environment for all members of the university community. As part of this commitment, the University requires applicants who have (1) been convicted of any felony or a misdemeanor such as simple battery or other convictions for behavior that resulted in injury to a person(s) or personal property or (2) who have a history of formal disciplinary action at any college or university attended to disclose this information as a mandatory step in the application process. A previous conviction or previous college disciplinary action does not automatically bar admission to the University, but does require review.
