IUHPFL is a selective program with an in-depth application process. Students must first register for the program (and pay a $25 registration fee) by November 15th. Students who meet all eligibility criteria will be invited to complete the full application, which includes: student essay questions, writing sample in target language, official school transcript, parental assessment, two academic appraisals, and one non-academic appraisal. The full application is due in early December. Some students may be asked to complete an in-person interview before final selection.
