Admitted Students

Your Journey Towards Success

Once you’ve been accepted as a participant in the Groups Scholars Program, you will be required to attend two mandatory meetings:

  • Groups Is IU: This is a visit in or near the city in which you live. Students should refer to their letter of acceptance for information on dates and locations for these visits. You AND at least one parent or guardian MUST attend. Our team does these visits starting at the end of February and finish up the first week of March. All meetings begin at 7 p.m. For additional information or questions about the visits in your area, please contact the Groups Scholars Program at
  • Cream & Crimson Welcome: The Cream & Crimson Welcome is the next step in your journey to becoming a Groups Scholar. The meeting is held the middle of April. Selected students will receive an email invitation to attend this meeting. Students are required to attend and parents/guardians are encouraged to accompany their student. Students will be provided information about housing, financial aid, the Summer Experience Program, and meet current Groups Scholars and staff.

Summer Experience Program

If you have completed all of the preliminary requirements to participate in the Groups Scholars Program, you will be eligible to attend the Summer Experience Program (SEP). The experience includes taking part in a rigorous college “boot camp” designed to provide a taste of college work in areas such as Business, Informatics, Public Health, Sociology and many more to help facilitate the transition from high school to college.
