Admissions Process for Histotechnology Associate Degree Program

Step 1: Complete the Application Pre-Screen.

Applicants should send a copy of all previous college or university transcripts (unofficial versions are accepted) by email to iuhtinfo@iu.edu. The program director will evaluate the applicant’s academic background and determine if he or she qualifies for admission to the program. After the candidate receives a pre-admission letter, (s)he can progress to Step 2. Note: Applicants typically wait to apply to the university until all program course prerequisites are finished (or in progress).

Step 2: Apply online at IUPUI Office of Admission.

Apply online through the IUPUI Office of Admissions. When completing the application, choose Histotechnology (Associate) as the planned major.
