Transfer Admission Standards

Indiana University Southeast strives to provide a positive experience for students who seek to transfer credit from another college or university. Transfer applicants who have previously attended one or more community colleges, colleges, and/or universities must satisfy the following requirements:

  • Applicants must submit official transcripts from all institutions previously attended. Applicants must demonstrate a cumulative college grade point average of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale and must be eligible to return to their previous college. Students who have been academically dismissed will not be eligible for admission to Indiana University Southeast based on the terms of their dismissal or suspension from their previous institution.
  • To be considered a transfer student, students must have earned at least 12 college level credit hours from an approved institution of higher education. The student who has earned fewer than 26 college credit hours must comply with entering student admission requirements as detailed at Freshmen Admission.
  • For applicants who have not attended a community college, college, or university within the past three years, admission can be based on factors such as maturity, work experience, and military service as determined by the Office of Admissions.
  • Some Indiana University Southeast schools and academic programs may have higher standards and specific requirements for admissions to a particular program, in addition to those mentioned here.
  • The campus may, at its discretion, admit a student on a conditional basis and/or through faculty sponsorship.*

Indiana University Southeast Transfer Credit Policy

Transfer students are required to submit official transcripts from all previously attended colleges. Transfer applicants are expected to have earned a cumulative college grade point average of 2.00 or higher on a 4.00 scale. Additionally, transfer applicants who have earned less than 26 semester hours of transfer credit are expected to meet the first year/freshman admission standards.

The Office of Admission, in conjunction with faculty, evaluates courses submitted for transfer credit according to several factors. These include the previous school’s accreditation, the content, level, and age of the course, and whether the credits are appropriate to an Indiana University Southeast degree program. Only courses in which a grade of C or higher is earned will transfer. Transfer credit may count toward meeting the requirements for a degree, but it will not count toward the IU Southeast grade point average. The Office of Admission makes an initial determination regarding the transferability and equivalency of courses submitted for transfer. Individual schools and departments at Indiana University Southeast determine how transferred credits will apply toward degree requirements.

Course equivalencies are maintained in transfer guides, program articulations, historical data, Indiana’s Core Transfer Library and u.select. IU Southeast also works to ensure students are made aware of how their credits will transfer by advising students at the community college level or pre-transfer level on a regular basis.

Veterans may earn college credit for educational experiences in the armed services. A certified DD Form 295 and/or DD Form 214, and/or transcripts from the Army/American Council on Education Registry Transcript Services (AARTS) or Sailor/Marine American Council on Education (SMART) transcript should be submitted with the application materials for consideration.

Credits earned while in high school (dual credit) will be evaluated in the same manner as transfer credit. Students are required to disclose they have taken such courses on their application and are required to submit official transcripts of all work to the admissions office.

Credit Transfer Policy for Bachelor’s Degrees

The Office of Admissions, in conjunction with faculty, evaluates courses submitted for transfer credit according to several factors. These include the previous school’s accreditation, the content, level, and age of the course, and whether the credits are appropriate to an Indiana University Southeast degree program. Only courses in which a grade of C or higher is earned will transfer. Transfer credit may count toward meeting the requirements for a degree, but it will not count toward the IU Southeast grade point average. The Office of Admissions makes an initial determination regarding the transferability and equivalency for courses submitted for transfer. Individual schools and departments at Indiana University Southeast determine how transferred credits will apply toward degree requirements.

Candidates for a bachelor’s degree must earn at least 26 additional credit hours in residence to graduate with an Indiana University degree. No more than 64 transferable credit hours from a community college, 90 transferable hours from a four-year university, or a combined 90 transferable credits from a community college (capped at 64) and a four-year institution may be applied to an Indiana University degree.

Veterans may earn college credit for education experiences in the armed services. A certified DD Form 295 and/or DD form 214, and/or transcripts from the Army/American Council on Education Joint Services Transcript (JST) should be submitted with the application materials for consideration.

Credits earned while in high school (dual credit) will be evaluated in the same manner as transfer credit. Students are required to disclose that they have taken such courses on their application and are required to submit official transcripts of all work to the Office of Admissions.

Established Articulation Agreements

Course-by-course equivalencies are maintained in transfer guides for Ivy Tech, Vincennes’s University, and KCTCS colleges in Kentucky.

Indiana Core Transfer Library, TransferIN.net

Indiana University Southeast maintains Indiana state college/university course equivalencies through Indiana’s Core Transfer Library (CTL): www.TransferIN.net/CTL.aspx.

TransferIN.net is being developed as the State of Indiana's official source for course transfer information across campuses and institutions. The objectives of TransferIN.net are: to develop statewide transfer-of-credit agreements for courses that are most frequently taken by undergraduates; to develop statewide agreements whereby Associate of Arts and Associate of Science programs will articulate fully with related baccalaureate degree programs; and to publicize by all appropriate means, including an electronic web site, a master list of course transfer-of-credit and program articulation agreements. You can find more information about TransferIN by visiting the Transfer IN website!

U.Select is an online transfer planning tool for course-by-course equivalencies for select institutions. Visit u.select or download our student guide.
