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 46, and 90 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 admissions account once you have applied and been accepted to the university.

Financial Aid & Scholarships

We are committed to making your Indiana Tech education affordable by offering financial aid assistance through the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as well as scholarships. Transfer students are eligible to receive an Achievement Award ranging from $4,000-$7,000 based on the cumulative GPA from the last college of attendance. You can calculate your Achievement Award and estimated financial aid offer using our online Net Price Calculator for Transfer Students.

NAIA Athletics

Athletic scholarships are awarded once eligibility is determined by the Registrar’s Office. Many factors are taken into consideration, so please contact the transfer counselor with specific questions.

All student athletes participating in a NAIA sanctioned sport must create a student athlete profile with the NAIA Eligibility Center and submit all official ACT or SAT test scores, final official high school and college transcripts directly to NAIA for final determination of eligibility.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. 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) for acceptance.

  2. 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 admissions folder.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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 $4,000-$7,000 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.

    Our minimum requirement for acceptance is a cumulative GPA of 2.0.
