Admission Standards for Transfer Students

International transfer applicants must establish a solid academic record in university level work before applying to IUPUI. We will review each application for its individual merits. In particular, we consider factors that emphasize academic performance and preparation, the strength and quality of the curriculum, recent grade trends, and results of standardized tests, when required.

IUPUI may be able to make an admission decision while you are in the process of completing the current term at your institution. However, if your final performance in your current term falls below the admission standards for IUPUI, International Admissions is very likely to withdraw the offer of admission.

  • Student must be in good academic standing at their current institution;
  • Students with more than 26 semester hours (39 quarter hours) of transferable credit do not need to submit secondary school records;
  • Students with less than 26 semester hours (39 quarter hours) of transferable credit will need to meet admission standards for beginning freshman;
  • Competitive programs will require a higher GPA for direct admission. Students are admitted to University College unless they meet school-specific transfer admission requirements;
  • You must meet English language proficiency standards.

Transfer credit cannot be formally acknowledged by the University without official transcripts. However, an unofficial transfer evaluation can be sent to the student for information purposes until official transcripts are received.
