Transfer Students

Important information for transfer students

While the information detailed in the New Students section of this website generally applies to all students, including transfer students, it is very important that you also pay particular attention to the following critical transfer instructions as you prepare for New Student Orientation (NSO).

New Student Orientation

Transfer students are required to participate in NSO. During NSO, you will connect with other transfer students, learn about the campus and resources, and meet with an academic advisor to register for courses.

Initially, there will be a hold preventing you from registering for classes. Once you meet with an advisor, we will remove the hold so you can enroll in courses.

Your Transfer Courses and Transcripts

Courses taken through any IU campus will automatically appear on your transcript. It is very important that you have either transcripts or a complete list of every non-IU college-level course you've taken available for review during your advising meeting.
