How to Apply

Choosing a high school is a big decision, but we’re thrilled you’re considering University High School. Here’s how to submit your application for admission to University High School.

The University High School Class of 2026 is now fully enrolled. Because of this, we are not accepting applications from 8th grade students at this time. Please contact Nancy Webster, Director of Admission, at 317-733-4475, ext. 120, with questions or to discuss.

Application Checklist

(Steps 1-3 may be completed in any order.)

1. Schedule a shadow visit. Spending a school day at University High School is the best way to see our community in action. Visit our shadow visit page for details on shadow visit opportunities in spring 2022.

2. Submit school records. Student records (download the student records release form) and a letter of recommendation are required. School records from the past two school years, as well as a standardized test result from the past two years, are preferred (if available).

3. Submit your application and supporting documents. Families may apply online to University High School.

While the Class of 2026 is currently full, University High School can accept a small number of transfer students in the sophomore, junior, and senior classes for the 2022-23 school year. We will review those applications on a rolling basis until enrollment in those classes is full. We encourage students to submit the application for admission as soon as possible for best consideration.

4. Check the mail. Admission decisions are mailed approximately two weeks after each application deadline.

Note: The application for admission is independent from the application from financial aid. Families interested in receiving financial aid must submit that application separately. The deadline to apply for financial aid in the 2022-23 school year has now passed.
