Each applicant must submit:
- A high school transcript with graduation date and SAT/ACT score if the applicant has completed fewer than 24 semester hours (or 36 quarter hours) of college course work
- Official college transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended
The Admission Committee reviews transfer applicants based on their academic success thus far.
If admission is granted, notification is sent regarding how to access the transfer evaluation online. Students may run a degree audit with Degree Works (accessible from MyUSI) or contact academic departments to learn which courses are needed to receive a specific degree from USI.
A minimum of 30 semester hours of credit must be earned toward the completion of a baccalaureate degree and 18 semester hours of credit toward an associate degree from USI.
Course credit earned from regionally accredited universities will be accepted as transfer credit subject to the Transfer Credit Policy.
Articulation agreements allow transfer of specific courses or blocks of credit from nearby community colleges.
These agreements apply to associate degree-earning students only. Students enrolled in an regionally accredited degree program and interested in a baccalaureate degree from USI are encouraged to obtain specific transfer credit information from their college transfer office, or USI, as early as possible. Some program restrictions do apply; specific details can be discussed with the USI Credentials Analyst.
For questions regarding the transferability of credits, contact Mary Branson, Credentials Analyst, at 812-465-7171 or 800-467-1965, or refer to www.transferin.net.
