Student Spotlight

“I transferred to IUPUC because I am able to get an Indiana University degree in Columbus. After spending a year on a larger campus, I realized that at IUPUC I would have more opportunities to connect on an individual level with professors, friends, and potential employers.”

Katie Barker, Class of 2015

Transfer Students

At IUPUC, you will enjoy small class sizes, personal attention from faculty and staff, challenging academic programs, and a growing campus with a number of student clubs and organizations in which you can get involved.

If you want to transfer to IUPUC from another campus, please review our degree programs and determine if one of them is a good fit for your educational and career goals.

Then contact us as soon as possible. We can help you determine the best course of study and time to make the switch!


To transfer to IUPUC, you should:

  • Submit official transcripts from all colleges and universities you have attended. Indiana University does not give credit for work not documented at the time of application.
  • Have a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 on a 4.00 scale
  • Meet beginning freshmen admission standards if you have fewer than 26 hours of college credit
  • A high school transcript is not required if you have completed 26 hours of coursework at the 100-level or above when you apply.
  • We accept credit for college level courses in which the student has received a grade of C or better from institutions regionally accredited by the Higher Education Commission.
  • A list of courses that will transfer among all Indiana public college and university campuses can be found at Indiana Transfer Library. The equivalency of courses is ultimately determined by faculty.
