The International College was founded in 1989 by Peter Myrian, Dr. Nicos Peristanis, and Andreas Polemitis as a non profit educational institution. It initially offered college courses in Athens, Greece, in Business Administration and Psychology. In 1990–1991 it became the University of Indianapolis Athens (UIA) through an agreement of the University of Indianapolis and International College. Under this educational co-operation both institutions flourished with UIA reaching an enrollment of approximately 500 students at the retirement of Peter Myrian (1989–2004). UIA was acquired by UIndy in 2004 through a holding company, UIndy International, LLC, and changed its name to University of Indianapolis – Athens Campus (UINDY ATHENS). Vasilis J. Botopoulos, a University of Indianapolis Vice President, was named the first Chancellor of the Athens Campus. Under his leadership, the campus exceeded 700 students.
In April 2013, UIndy announced that, because of declining enrolment and revenue related to economic problems in Greece, all undergraduate programs and most graduate programs would be phased out as of Aug. 31, 2013. The college ceased operations in July 2014.
