Katie Barker

"I chose IUPUC because I can get an IU degree right here in Columbus! I like the small class sizes and the opportunity to connect with faculty, friends, and potential employers."

  • Katie Barker, Class of 2015

If you want to transfer to IUPUC from another college or university, you’ll find we offer Indiana University and Purdue University degree programs on a welcoming, convenient Columbus campus.

You’ll enjoy our challenging academic programs, small class sizes, and one-on-one attention from faculty and staff dedicated to helping you attain your educational goals.

If you want to pursue a degree at IUPUC, please contact our Office of Recruitment and Admissions. We can guide you through the transfer process.


  • You must meet IUPUC’s admission standards, including a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.00 on a 4.00 scale.
  • You must be in good academic standing at your current school. If you have been dismissed or are on drop status, you may not apply for admission to IUPUC for one full semester (summer sessions do not apply).
  • An official copy of your current college transcript, and transcripts from any other college or university you may have attended, is required.
  • Your courses taken and grades earned will be reviewed as part of the admission process.
  • If you have completed fewer than 26 hours of transferable credit, submit an official copy of your high school transcript or GED scores.
  • If your SAT or ACT scores are available, please provide official copies. If you have not taken either of these exams, it is not necessary that you do so now.
