How to Apply

In order to apply to the IUHS Diploma Program you need to have an IU Guest Account. This will be your Canvas account (Canvas is where you will access your courses) and your Genius Account (Genius SIS is our Student Information System). You will follow nearly the same process as mentioned in How to Register on the Courses page, only with some simple additional steps explained below.

Please do not create a second IU Guest Account in following these steps. If you already have a guest account, please use it and proceed to step 3.

  1. Create a Guest Account at The student’s legal name must be used when creating the account, not that of the parent/guardian.
  2. Activate the Guest Account. Follow the instructions in the activation email, which should arrive a few minutes after you create the account. Please do not skip the next step, as this will delay your registration by causing Genius to be unable to add you to course rosters.
  3. Join the Genius SIS tutorial at Click the link and follow the instructions to enroll in the tutorial, using your Guest Account username. The tutorial will guide you through the use of Genius SIS and tell you more about how to register for courses.
  4. Login to Genius SIS at If this is your first time in Genius, it will ask you to complete a student information page. Once complete, you should see the standard 'Dashboard' view of Genius. Click on the Diploma Program link on the left side menu to begin the application process.
IUHS will soon contact you to request a list of all of your previous high schools. Once we have received transcripts from each, our advising team will create a personalized academic plan sheet for you.When you are admitted, you will receive an e-mail to notify you, and a separate e-mail with a link to allow you to download your academic plan sheet. You will also receive an admission packet through regular mail. At this point, you will want to contact an academic advisor to discuss any questions you might have regarding your academic plan sheet or course selections.
  1. Go to the IUHS Course Catalog at to request your first courses. (Subject-specific catalog links are provided at the bottom of the Courses page.) Click on any course to request it, then follow the instructions provided.

Once you request a course, it must be approved by an advisor. When you are notified that it was approved, click on ‘Make a Payment’ in Genius to pay for your course(s).
