Transfer Credit Process

We help you make a successful transfer

The transfer process can seem confusing, but it doesn't need to be. We're here to support you by guiding you through the process and answering your questions. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is your starting point for this process.

Prepare to transfer

When you're getting ready to transfer, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions will review your coursework from any other colleges or universities to determine whether you will receive credit at IU Indianapolis for that coursework.

You are also encouraged to review courses and submit syllabi for previous coursework you would like IU Indianapolis to review. This process may save you time and money, too. Tools for estimating how your credit will transfer are available in the resources section.

Learn more about transferring credit

If you're transferring from another IU campus, your credit will automatically appear on your IU Indianapolis academic record for an advisor to review and apply to your degree program.

If you were admitted through the Ivy Tech/IU Indianapolis Dual Admission Program, your academic advisor will assist you in the entire transfer process.
