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.
