Transfers from Undergraduate Programs in Other Schools on the Bloomington Campus
Students transferring to the College of Arts and Sciences from undergraduate programs in other schools of the university, such as the Kelley School of Business, the School of Education, or the Jacobs School of Music, must have completed at least 26 credit hours that can count toward a degree in the College with a minimum cumulative College of Arts and Sciences grade point average of 2.000. They also must have completed the English Composition requirement. Engineering and technical courses, including courses from the School of Engineering and Technology, cannot be applied as credit toward a degree program in the College of Arts and Sciences. Students must contact the advisor in the department in which they wish to become a major. The advisor will submit a School Change Request to the College Recorder’s Office (Kirkwood Hall 001) for processing. Requests to change schools must be completed by July 1 for the fall semester, December 1 for the spring semester, and April 15 for the summer session.
Transfers to and from Other Indiana University Campuses
Students can transfer easily from one campus of Indiana University to another and continue their studies as degree candidates. Credits are evaluated on a course-by-course basis, but students generally find that most courses do transfer because of the similarity of course work on the eight campuses. Transferring students should note that the degree requirements differ among the various campuses of Indiana University. Students who are eligible to transfer as degree candidates from one campus of Indiana University to another must meet the degree requirements of the degree-granting division of the campus from which they expect to graduate.
Transfers from Other Indiana University Campuses to the College
Students transferring to the College of Arts and Sciences at Bloomington from other campuses of Indiana University must have completed at least 26 credit hours that can count toward a degree from the College, maintained a minimum cumulative College of Arts and Sciences grade point average of 2.000, and completed the English Composition requirement. See above (“Transfers to and from Other Indiana University Campuses”) for additional requirements in effect.

Transfers from Other Colleges and Universities
Indiana University welcomes students who wish to transfer from other colleges or universities. Students who have completed less than one full year of academic course work will be considered for admission into the University Division. Students who have completed at least 26 credit hours that can count toward a degree in the College, a year of course work at another institution, and the English Composition requirement may be granted admission to the College of Arts and Sciences.
Applications for transfer admission are evaluated on the basis of a number of factors, including the following:
- A minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.000 on a 4.000 scale. A higher GPA is required for certain majors. In addition, nonresidents of Indiana will be expected to have a considerably higher GPA for consideration.
- A high school record showing satisfactory entrance units.
- Evidence of good standing in the institution last attended.
- Official transcripts of credits and grades earned in all subjects. Acceptance of credit from other institutions will be determined by the Office of Admissions. The applicability of credit toward degree requirements in the College will be determined by the Dean of the College. Only credits earned at Indiana University will count toward a student’s cumulative grade point average. Courses from other colleges and universities transfer as credit only, with the exception of courses that transfer into a student’s major; the grades associated with these courses are factored into the student’s major grade point average.
