Transfer Courses
Students wishing to transfer required course work from a university other than
Indiana University must be in good academic standing at that university and
have achieved a grade of C (2.0) or higher in courses for which transfer is being
Students with “undistributed” transfer hours or course equivalencies and/
or substitutions may request approval from the APG (Admissions, Progression,
Graduation) committee to use the course(s) in the application (see your
academic advisor).
Undistributed classes are those transferred from another academic institution
that are not IU Southeast-equivalent courses, however, the student is granted
credit for the course on the credit transfer report.
The Admission, Progression, Graduation (APG) committee reviews the student
request to approve or deny transfer credit/undistributed courses as appropriate.
a. The student submits a written request to the APG committee to approve
the undistributed course, specifically noting the general education or nursing
requirement the course is to meet.
b. Attach the course syllabus with goals and objectives or the course description
from the transferring school. This information may be obtained from an official
website or college bulletin from the transferring academic institution.
c. The APG committee responds to the student in writing. If approved, the
academic advisor applies the course to the student’s degree plan. If denied, the
student, must take the course.
Course Time Limit
The Registered Nurse student pursuing a B.S.N. degree is exempt from course
time limits. Qualifying courses will be applied to the course plan regardless of
when they were taken.
