Transfers from Other Undergraduate Schools on the IUB CampusStudents transferring to the School of Informatics at IUB from other undergraduate schools of the university—such as the College of Arts and Sciences or the Schools of Education, Public and Environmental Affairs, Music, or the Kelley School of Business—must have completed at least 26 credit hours of course work that can count toward a degree in the School of Informatics, with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (C). Students also must complete the English composition requirement and receive a grade of C or higher before entering the School of Informatics. Students pursuing a B.S. degree in informatics (INFOBS) must also complete INFO-I 101 Introduction to Informatics, complete the mathematics requirement, (MATH-M 118, or equivalent with a minimum grade of C) before entering the School of Informatics.
Transfers Within the School of Informatics on the IUB and IUPUI CampusesTransfer students admitted to the School of Informatics on the IUB campus who want to transfer to the School of Informatics on the IUPUI campus, or vice versa, should file an Intercampus Transfer Form. Intercampus Transfer Forms are accepted throughout the year.
Transfers from Other Indiana University CampusesPlease consult “Transfer to Other Indiana University Campuses” at the back of this bulletin for information on transfers between Indiana University campuses.
Transfers from Other Colleges and UniversitiesStudents who have completed at least 26 credit hours that can count toward a degree in the School of Informatics—including the English composition requirement—may apply for admission to the School of Informatics at IUB. Students pursuing a B.S. degree in Informatics (INFOBS) must also complete MATH-M 118 and INFO-I 101 with a minimum grade of C before being admitted.
The Office of Admissions at IUB will determine acceptance of credit from other institutions. The dean of the School of Informatics will determine the applicability of credit toward degree requirements. Please consult “Undergraduate Admissions Policy” at the front of this bulletin for more information about transfers from other colleges and universities.
Transfer Credit RulesCredits transferred are generally evaluated according to the following rules:
- Courses taken at other institutions in which the student earned a grade below C do not transfer.
- Courses taken at other institutions on a quarter system instead of a semester system will be evaluated as carrying fewer credit hours (for example, a 3 credit hour course taken on a quarter system will transfer as 2.5 credits).
- Courses taken at other institutions for which there is an equivalent IU course (in terms of course description, level, and prerequisites) generally will be evaluated as credit in the equivalent IU courses.
- Courses taken at other institutions for which there is no equivalent IU course (in terms of course description, level, and prerequisites) generally will be evaluated as “undistributed” credit (marked UNDI on the IU transcript). Undistributed credits may count toward the student’s degree requirements, but the school through which the course is offered determines if the course may be equivalent to a certain distribution or requirement. Please see your advisor for further information.
