Each year many students transfer from one campus of the university to another to continue their studies toward a degree. Few other multi-campus universities are organized in such a way as to accommodate or facilitate these transfers. Credits transferred from one campus of Indiana University to another will be evaluated and accepted in terms which are at least as favorable as credits from other institutions, applying the same criteria used in evaluating external credits.
Students who wish to transfer from any IU campus to another should follow these procedures:
- Inform your academic advisor of your decision as soon as possible. Degree requirements may vary from one campus to another but if your advisor knows of your plan, your academic program may be designed to meet the requirements of the campus you will eventually attend.
- Contact the department chairperson (or the designated advisor) at the campus you plan to attend. Discuss your plan and ask about any special procedures. For example, transfers in fine arts must submit portfolios of their work and music transfers must audition.
- Fill out the appropriate intercampus transfer application.
- When you arrive on the new campus, contact your designated advisor as soon as possible. Discuss your academic progress to date and the additional course work required for your new degree program.
