Indiana University Transfer Credit Practices and Policies
You'll find more information about Indiana University's transfer policies here. Please keep in mind these other practices that determine how we transfer college coursework, test results, and other learning experiences.
Your credit transfer report
Once you are admitted to IU South Bend, we will evaluate your official transcript(s). After your transfer credit has been evaluated, your Credit Transfer Report (CTR) can be viewed through One.IU. Please remember that you must submit all your college transcripts in order for us to make a full evaluation. This will include any college transcripts for credit earned while still in high shcool.
If there was course work “in progress” at time of admission, you must submit an official copy of the final transcript with grades or a note of withdrawal assigned for each course listed.
Service Indicators (Holds) for Transcripts: Student records are assigned a Service Indicator inhibiting enrollment for the next semester until the final transcript is submitted. You should work with the Office of Admissions to resolve any difficulties in obtaining the official, final transcript.
Students who are not awarded credit as anticipated may appeal.
- General Education Substitutions: Transfer students may petition to have a course taken at another school or campus fulfill a General Education requirement. In such cases, you should review the description of the General Education requirement in the relevant category and consult with your academic advisors before filing a petition. These appeals must be submitted to the General Education Committee. More information about this process is linked here.
- Other Credit Appeals: Students should meet with an academic advisor to determine whether a transferred course requires further review. With the support of an academic advisor, students may submit a transfer credit appeal form to the Office of Admissions. These forms are available from the school or college in which the student is enrolled. Please phone Admissions, 574-520-4839 for assistance.
