Frequently Asked Questions

What does "official transcript" mean?

An official transcript is one that comes from the Registrar's office of your university or college. These transcripts often come in a sealed envelope with a signature across the seal. We can accept a transcript in a signed envelope with an unbroken seal either from the applicant or directly from the conferring university or college. Note that the signed seal must be unbroken for us to accept the transcript.

If electronic transcripts are considered official by your university or college, then we will accept them. In this case, we must receive the e-transcript directly from your university or college to the center email address. If you are applying to REEI or IAUNRC for summer FLAS for intensive language study at the Indiana University Summer Language Workshop (formerly known as SWSEEL), please have your recommendations and transcripts sent directly to the Summer Language Workshop office:

Which FAFSA form do I fill out?

All applicants for FLAS in Academic Year 2017-18 must fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application for 2017-18 and request to have the results sent to Indiana University.

A FAFSA is NOT required for applicants for FLAS in Summer 2017.
