To support the value and consistency of transfer throughout IU, the state and university developed policies that are used throughout different IU institutions and campuses. The policies inform the principles of operation for the UTO. The specific policies and guidelines described below affect transfer students directly. These policies are relevant to transfer students because many of these students bring along transfer credit. For example, the policy of Transfer of Credit Completed at 100 and 200 Level (ACA-56) affects transfer credit by not allowing any 100—200 level courses taken at an associate's college to be transferred in as 300—400 level IU classes. To view more policies relevant to transfer students, view the "Issues Affecting Transfer" tab.
The Indiana Commission for Higher Education maintains TransferIN.net, which helps guide you through the process of transferring from one Indiana school to another. The Core Transfer Library (CTL) is a list of courses that will transfer among Indiana public institutions offering those courses. All meet general education or elective requirements, and some may apply to your degree program.
