Transfer Applicants

We accept sophomore transfer students, both students from IUP and from other schools.

Any student with fewer than 30 credit hours may apply as a transfer student.

 A Few Details about Being a Transfer Student

  • As a transfer, you will join the freshman Core cohort in the Fall of your sophomore year.
  • Core will count for some first-year courses most likely already completed at your present school or through AP testing (for example: Your introductory English, History, or Fine Arts courses are covered by Core). Transfer credits in these courses may count as free electives.
  • The first-year Whitmyre Hall residency requirement applies to transfers.
