Martin University, located in the urban setting of Indianapolis, Indiana, is a private, non-profit institution that stands as the only predominantly Black institution in the state. Established in 1977 by Rev. Fr. Boniface Hardin and Sr. Jane Schilling, its mission has been focused on serving low-income, minority, and adult learners. The university's academic profile is underscored by its emphasis on tailored, flexible educational programs designed for working adults and non-traditional students. While Martin University hosts a range of undergraduate and graduate programs, it is recognized for its strengths in fields such as psychology, criminal justice, and business management. Martin does not provide on-campus student housing, reflecting its focus on commuter students and those from the local community. The university practices an open admissions policy, aiming to be accessible to a broad array of students seeking higher education.

Martin University has an open admission policy which permits enrollment by any high school graduate or GED holding student.  84 students are enrolled on a full time basis, and 103 attend part time. In-state tuition for 2022/2023, excluding room and board, is $12,840 plus fees of $360.
