Transfer of Credit Completed at the 100 and 200 LevelACA-56
All Indiana University campuses, schools and departments.
Credits earned at regionally accredited “associate’s colleges” (Carnegie Classification) and transferred for IU credit may not be recorded as equivalent to IU course credits at advanced (300/400) levels, or applied to degree requirements normally fulfilled only by advanced level course credits. Typically, lower level coursework at any regionally accredited undergraduate institution (100/200-level or like-numbered courses) cannot transfer as upper level coursework (300/400 level); however, disciplinary faculty or degree-granting departments may—in cases other than that of credit earned at associate’s colleges— use their own judgment in assigning transfer credit.
Reason for Policy
This policy is intended to ensure that transfer students do not receive Indiana University credit at inappropriate levels.
