Transfer Credit From an Associate’s College Applied to an Indiana University Baccalaureate Degree
Except as described below, no more than 64 semester credit hours earned from Associate’s Colleges may be applied to any Indiana University baccalaureate degree system-wide and no new articulation agreements with Associate's Colleges may exceed this limit. Additional credit hours may be transferred in but can not be applied to a degree. Individual schools or campuses can choose to further limit the number of credits from an Associate’s College applicable to their baccalaureate degrees. Vincennes University will be considered an Associate’s College except in the areas for which it has accredited baccalaureate degrees. Existing articulation agreements with Associate’s Colleges that apply more than 64 credit hours to an Indiana University baccalaureate degree must be reviewed by the original parties to the agreement and brought into compliance with this policy by Fall Semester 2010. This limit shall not apply under the following circumstances:
Associate’s College: Includes institutions where the highest degree conferred is at the associate’s degree or, or where bachelor's degrees account for less than 10 percent of all undergraduate degrees. (Also known as community colleges, junior colleges).
Baccalaureate Colleges, Master’s Colleges, or Universities/Doctoral-granting Universities: Institutions are included in these categories if bachelor’s degrees accounted for at least 10 percent of all undergraduate degrees, and may also include specific numbers of Master’s level or PhD level students. All IU campuses meet or exceed the Carnegie Classification of “Baccalaureate Colleges”.
