Transfer Credit & Evaluation
In general, credit is given for academic courses in which you have
earned a grade of “C” or higher from regionally accredited colleges or
universities. The degree program you choose to pursue will affect the
number of credits that are applied toward our core curriculum, major
requirements, and electives. The maximum number of transfer credits
allowed towards an associate degree is 49, and 94 towards a bachelor’s
degree. Transcripts from all previously attended postsecondary
institutions are required before transfer credit is reviewed. Courses
completed at unaccredited institutions or programs will be reviewed on
an individual basis.
Transfer credit results are displayed via a Degree Requirement Report,
or degree audit, and available for viewing through the Degree Audit
Portlet on your my.IndianaTech.edu admissions account once you have
applied and been accepted to the university.

Why Transfer to Indiana Tech?
Indiana Tech offers outstanding, career-focused academic programs
accredited by The Higher Learning Commission of The North Central
Association of Colleges and Schools.
We offer students a relationship-based education with small class sizes,
no lecture halls, and no student teachers. The average class size is 19
students, which means your professor will get to know you. You will also
have opportunities for more “hands-on” classwork and individual
attention from your professors.
Indiana Tech is a small 40-acre campus with a diverse student population
of approximately 1,100 students from all across the United States and 22
countries. We offer 8 suite and apartment-style residential halls that
house approximately 610 students. Transfer students looking for
off-campus housing have plenty of options to choose from with over 50
apartment complexes throughout the city.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who qualifies as a transfer student?
Any student who enrolled in a college course after high school
graduation or obtaining a GED, regardless of the length of time enrolled,
is considered a transfer student and must submit college transcript(s)
Can I submit unofficial transcripts?
Unofficial transcripts will be accepted to complete a transfer credit
evaluation and for a conditional acceptance decision. However, you will
be required to submit all final official transcripts to complete your
What is the difference between an official and unofficial transcript?
A transcript is considered official when it is sent from the high school
or college in a sealed envelope containing the institution’s official
seal or signature. A transcript is considered unofficial if it lacks the
institutions official seal or signature, if it is printed directly from
your online student account, or if it is not received in a sealed envelope.
Will all of my credits transfer? Do you have transfer equivalencies?
Classes in which you have earned a grade of “C” or higher can transfer
in as elective hours or as required credit hours if we have a class
equivalency and that class is required for your major. Different majors
require different classes, so not all of your classes are guaranteed to
transfer in. If the class equivalency isn’t required for your major,
classes can transfer in as elective hours as long as there are enough
free electives in your major. Some majors do not offer any free
electives. You can find the curriculum for all of our majors in the
Big Orange Book.
What type of financial aid and scholarships can I receive?
Transfer students with a GPA of 2.0 or higher are eligible to receive an
academic scholarship ranging from $3,000-$6,000 per year. We use your
FAFSA to determine additional aid that you may qualify for including:
Federal or State grants, grants or additional scholarships from Indiana
Tech, and Federal Stafford or Perkins Loans. Student athletes deemed
eligible by our Registrar’s Office or NAIA may receive an athletic
scholarship as determined by the coach. Students who choose not to
submit a FAFSA will only receive an academic scholarship.
What are the requirements for acceptance?
Our minimum requirement for acceptance is a cumulative GPA of 2.0. Some
of the engineering and computer sciences degrees have higher GPA
requirements of 2.7 or 3.0, as well as completion of certain math
courses. For transfers, acceptance is based on the cumulative GPA from
the last institution attended.
What are CLEP/Dantes exams?
These are exams that any student can sign up to take, for a fee, to test
out of a class without taking the class. Most colleges will administer
