The Region’s University: Fulfilling the Promise

At Indiana University Northwest, you can earn a prestigious IU education and make a difference in your hometown region or anywhere in the world.

Getting your IU degree in the region you live has benefits beyond compare. Affordability, small classes and unique learning experiences set IU Northwest apart. Here, you'll have opportunities that a personal education can provide, like working on research alongside faculty and stepping out of the classroom to learn among professionals in your field.

Our campus offers more than 70 undergraduate degrees to choose from within the School of Education, College of Arts and Sciences, College of Health and Human Services and School of Business and Economics. We are also home to the IU School of Medicine-Northwest, the region’s only medical school. 

At the Region’s University, we are committed to the promise of making your Indiana University education personal, affordable, and life changing.
