Intercampus transfer allows you to transfer from one IU campus to another for a semester or permanently. There are two types of intercampus transfer available to IU students.
Note that in order to be approved to be either a temporary or permanent intercampus transfer student you must complete the intercampus transfer application.
Intercampus transfer applications for each campus can be found by clicking the button below.
Temporary Intercampus Transfer is when a student enrolled in an IU degree program transfers to another IU campus for one semester as a visiting student, before returning to their home campus.
Permanent Intercampus Transfer is when a student enrolled in an IU degree program transfers to a different IU campus to finish their degree there. If you are looking to complete a permanent intercampus transfer, contact the campus you wish to transfer to for more information on transfer requirements, deadlines, and any other special procedures. All intercampus transfer students should apply early.
Undistributed credit generally means that a particular transfer course doesn’t match any courses on your chosen campus. Instead of denying you the credit, the course is listed as “undistributed.” In most cases, this will count only toward elective credit, although some programs will consider an appeal for it to count toward general education or within a degree program.
Talk with your academic advisor to determine how undistributed credit will be utilized toward your degree.
Several types of courses do not transfer. Some of these include:
- Remedial or developmental coursework,
- Any coursework that isn't included as part of the STGEC,
- Courses for which IU doesn't offer an equivalent (i.e. some vocational, technical or professional courses).
