Transfer Students

Are you considering transferring to IUPUI and the Luddy Indianapolis? We’re here to make the process a bit less intimidating! Follow the steps below and contact an advisor if you have any questions during the process.

Philosophy Statement

As an urban research institution, IUPUI is deeply committed to the educational success of all students. As part of this commitment, students who transfer to IUPUI will experience coordinated, holistic, and developmentally appropriate support as they transition into and through the university.

As they pursue their degrees, they will be intentionally connected to high-quality curricular and co-curricular learning experiences and provided continuous access to support services. Their student experiences will be based on a theoretical framework that supports the unique needs of transfer students. These experiences will enhance their academic and social integration and commitment to attaining academic and career goals.

I chose to return to IUPUI to finish the degree I began in 1997. I was seeking a degree in Art Education, but wanted to switch to computing and technology. The MAS degree allowed me to combine my appreciation of visual communication with the growing landscape of social media.

1. Research our Degrees

Investigate our programs to see if we’re a good academic fit for each other. If you would like more information, we strongly encourage prospective transfer students from any undergraduate program or school (including students already at IUPUI) to schedule an appointment to speak with one of our advisors who can help evaluate your situation and guide you through the process.

2. Course Transfers

You can use the Transfer Rule Catalog to view what courses will transfer to IUPUI. And don’t forget to review IUPUI’s Transfer Credit Policy. You can also earn college credit through real life experience.

You can learn more about IUPUI’s transfer process through the Center for Transfer and Adult Students, which includes information on admissions, orientation, transfer credit, academics, finances, and student life and support.

Ivy Tech Students

The Luddy Indianapolis has course articulation agreements with the following programs at Ivy Tech:

The Center for Transfer and Adult Students is an invaluable resource for students transferring from Ivy Tech to IUPUI. They maintain a list of all Ivy Tech courses that can be transferred into IUPUI, including general education courses. Please be sure to contact them if you have any questions about the application process, financial aid, or specific Ivy Tech to IUPUI scholarships.

After you are officially accepted to IUPUI, you will receive instructions on registering for Transfer Tuesday, an online webinar, and orientation. During orientation, you will meet with an academic advisor for an advising appointment where you will discuss your transfer courses, academic goals, and remaining courses needed for graduation.
