INDIANA STATE UNIVERSITY

“BLUE MEANS A NETWORK OF FRIENDS THAT BECOME FAMILY, FACULTY THAT WILL SUPPORT YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY, A HOME AWAY FROM HOME, AND A SECOND CHANCE TO SUCCEED BEYOND WHAT YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE.”

WE GET IT. “TRANSFERRING ALL OF MY CREDITS OVER WAS REALLY SIMPLE. THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE AT INDIANA STATE THAT WERE ABLE TO HELP ME UNDERSTAND THE PROCESS.”

Andrew Case, communication major

Danielle Cohen, criminal justice major

“BLUE IS NOT JUST A SCHOOL COLOR, IT IS A WAY OF LIFE. IT IS REMEMBERING THAT YOU REPRESENT SOMETHING MORE THAN YOURSELF. IT IS BEING PROUD OF WHERE YOU ARE AND WHERE YOU ARE GOING.” Ashley Tinkle, social work major

This year, we’d like to add you. You’ve had a taste of college life, and now you’re ready for more. You could be transferring from a community college or an institution that just didn’t quite fit. Either way, you have a strong sense of determination and the willpower to cross the finish line. You’re ready to get down to business, but of course, you’d like to have some fun along the way.

We get it. At State, you’ll fit right in, like you’ve been here all along.

Transfer Central The basics When you’re ready to get the ball rolling, check out Indiana State’s Transfer Central website. It leads you step-by-step through the transfer process, including: • Use the course-by-course evaluation tool to see which credits will transfer. 
 • Find the bachelor’s degree program of your dreams. 
 • See class options—both on-campus and online. 
 • Learn how to apply for financial aid and scholarships. 


What you’ll need to become a Sycamore: • Be in good standing at your last accredited institution. • If you have earned fewer than 24 credit hours at previous institutions, your high school transcript must meet the requirements for freshmen admitted to Indiana State.

State’s General Transfer Credit Guidelines Credit earned from regionally accredited colleges and universities is transferable. Credit earned from nationally accredited colleges and universities is not transferable. Transfer credit is assigned only for courses at the 100 level (or above) in which you have earned a grade of “C” or higher. Generally, an equivalent number of credit hours are given. Remedial, audited, or non-credit courses do not transfer. College living, orientation, and study skills classes do not transfer. In some cases, credit may be transferable to the University and count toward graduation, but may not be applied toward completion of your intended major.

• Earn at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA in your previous college studies. (Some programs, such as education and nursing, have additional or separate requirements.)

As much as 90 credit hours of total transfer credit will be accepted for transfer into a bachelor degree program; at least 30 credit hours must be completed through Indiana State to earn the bachelor degree.

Transfer Planning Tool

Your grades (GPA) do not transfer except for the purpose of graduation honors.

Transferring to a new university can be an overwhelming process. Help is just a click away—the online Transfer Planning Tool analyzes where you’ve been and helps plan your path ahead.

If you transfer a bachelor degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution, all of the University’s Foundational Studies/General Education requirements will be waived.

Partner institutions can mean maximum credit transfer! Indiana State is partnered with Ivy Tech Community College, Vincennes University, and many two-year colleges to help you get the most bang for your buck. These transfer plans allow you to start off earning your associate’s degree from a partnered institution, then switch over to finish up at State. indstate.edu/transfer

All transfer tools and guidelines can be found at indstate.edu/transfer NOTE: These are general guidelines. Upon admission, advisors will review your transcripts and determine which credit transfers and which courses will be included in your program of study. • Sign up for emails and announcements that let you know current news, updated info and when to take the next step in your transfer process.

Top 5 ways to ensure a

smooth transfer If you’re transferring to State here are five tips to keep you on track.

1. Think ahead Make sure what you’re doing now will apply toward what you want to do later. While State accepts most credits, planning ahead will help make sure you don’t take classes that won’t count toward your Indiana State degree plan. More of your credits will likely transfer if you earn an associate of science or an associate of arts degree. If you’re unsure, review the requirements for the program you want to join at indstate.edu/ academics/majors

2. What do you want to do with your college degree? Of course, that can be a hard question to answer right this minute. At State, you’ll have guidance from advisors who will help you find more than a job you like, you’ll discover a career you love.

3. Explore your options Communicate your plans with your advisor at your current school. Choose electives and courses that you know will be accepted once you become a Sycamore. Use the Transfer Planning Tool to help you track your progress and make sure the courses you select now will be counted when you make your switch to State. indstate.edu/transfer

4. Get money for school

5. Keep in touch

Did you know nearly 80 percent of State students receive some form of financial aid for school? Some funding, like loans, will eventually need to be repaid. However, many Sycamores also receive grants and scholarships that do not have to be paid back. You could be eligible for:

Division I athletic events, and that’s where you’ll find

The Forest. The student section is usually pretty easy to spot, but they’re even easier to hear—making noise in support of Sycamores is what The Forest does best.

“Joining Greek life has been the best thing for me; I knew I wanted to rush, but it has really gotten me involved on the campus. I also started writing for the Indiana Statesman, which has given me the chance to go to events I otherwise wouldn’t have. My advice to any transfer student is to get involved. State has so many clubs and organizations. Finding a group you fit in with will make the move so much easier.� Brittney Williams, communication major

FINANCIAL AID

Don’t be late— time is money Blue is for an affordable higher education. And we’re for empowering you to find all the help you can get to pay for that education. It starts with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). File your FAFSA as soon as October 1, 2017 so we can process your award early. When aid is granted, the funds are typically applied to your student account about ten days before the start of the term. If you file late or forget to file, it can mean delays in processing. Indiana residents must meet the state deadline of April 15, 2018 to be considered for state aid. When filing, enter Indiana State’s federal school code 001807. For a preliminary estimate of cost and eligibility, we encourage you to use our Net Price Calculator. We’ve made the process easy by linking you directly to the Net Price Calculator and FAFSA at indstate.edu/finaid
