To date, no known cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) have been identified on any of the Indiana University campuses. However, due to the rapidly changing situation and with the safety and well-being of students and others in mind, President Michael A. McRobbie issued a university-wide letter. The letter includes updated guidelines pertaining to virtual teaching, visitors, domestic travel, and large events.

As a result, Community & School Partnerships (CSP) is suspending this year’s Spring Shadow program. We will be contacting applicants to let them know of this change and to provide electronic college readiness resources and highlight other opportunities that they may be able to take advantage of in the future.

Community & School Partnerships will continue to monitor the rapidly changing situation with the novel coronavirus COVID-19 and will post updates regarding future events, programs, and services, and any necessary schedule changes on our website.

Spring Shadow is open to current 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students. Successful applicants typically have a minimum GPA of 2.5.

Current 12th grade students who have already been accepted to Indiana University and are interested in an on-campus experience, are encouraged to contact the Office of Admissions regarding attending a Red Carpet Day event.
