New culture. New country. No problem—here’s what you need to pursue a Kelley MBA.

You will also need to provide:

TOEFL or IELTS scores

If English is not your native language, you must take the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or IELTS (International English language Testing System) before submitting your application, regardless of the language of instruction used during your education.

  •  Have your TOEFL or IELTS scores sent to Indiana University, Bloomington (code 1324, department code 02) .

Minimum scores: We require a minimum internet-based TOEFL score of 100; 600 on the paper-based TOEFL; or band 7.0 on the IELTS.

Note: We cannot accept TOEFL or IELTS scores that are more than two years old.

Waiver of the TOEFL or IELTS requirement: The TOEFL or IELTS requirement is automatically waived for international applicants who have completed a college or university degree in the United States.

Evidence of financial support

U.S. immigration regulations require you to demonstrate that you have sufficient funds to cover your expenses for a 12-month period.

Estimated Costs for the 2013-14 Academic Year
These costs are reviewed annually and subject to change.
Tuition and Fees $47,533
Room and Board (12 months) $11,617
Health Insurance & Miscellaneous (12 months) $6,128
Total $65,278

Married? You should have an additional $6,959 available to support an accompanying spouse, $6,275 to support a first child, and $4,118 per year for each additional child. Health and accident insurance is required for all accompanying dependents and is included in these estimates.

If you are offered admission, you will be required to complete and submit the International Student Financial Documentation and Visa Application along with evidence of your financial support. 

Before we can issue your visa document (the I-20) you must provide completed financial documentation demonstrating your ability to meet all expenses for at least one academic year.

Note: You cannot use the possibility of employment to show you have adequate financial resources before a visa is issued. A spouse who is on a student-dependent visa (F-2) cannot work.

We will work with the Office of International Services as we process your application for admission. The Office of International Services will review your evidence of financial support and issue your visa documentation, should you be offered admission.
