When you are admitted you will receive an email notification. You will also receive a separate email with a link allowing you to download your academic plan sheet. In a few days you should receive an admission packet through regular mail. At this point, you will want to contact an IU High School academic advisor to discuss any questions you might have regarding your academic plan sheet or course selections.
