Requirements for Entering Students

Transfer Students

Applicants who have previously attended one or more community colleges, colleges, and/or universities must satisfy the following requirements:

Applicants must submit official transcripts from all institutions previously attended. Applicants must demonstrate a cumulative college grade point average of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 point scale and must be eligible to return to their previous college. Students who have been academically dismissed will not be eligible for admission to Indiana University Southeast based on the terms of their dismissal or suspension from their previous institution. 

To be considered a transfer student, students must have earned at least 12 college level credit hours from an approved institution of higher education. The student who has earned fewer than 26 college credit hours must comply with entering student admission requirements as specified in the section titled First-Year Beginners.

For applicants who have not attended a community college, college, or university within the past three years, admission can be based on factors such as maturity, work experience, and military service as determined by the Office of Admissions.

Some IU Southeast schools and academic programs may have higher standards and specific requirements for admission to a particular program, in addition to those mentioned here.

The campus may, at its discretion, admit a student on a conditional basis and/or through faculty sponsorship.  For the latest transfer information, visit
