You started taking college classes before applying to IUP, pushing yourself and preparing for the challenges of university courses. Now, your hard work pays off. IUP works with first-time students who have earned college credits.
More and more students are starting college with credits toward their degrees. Here’s how the process works and what you need to do:
There are two parts to the credit transfer process. First, there is the evaluation of the course to determine an equivalent. The second part is how that credit can fit into the requirements for earning the degree you choose at IUP.
Generally, any college-level/non-developmental course in which you earn a C or better will transfer. You can also earn credits for AP exams, CLEP exams, or IB credits. If you earn these, they will appear on your IUP transcript. You will then be able to consult the IUP Undergraduate Catalog and your faculty advisor to understand how these credits fit into your degree program here at IUP.
Always speak to your academic advisor about your credits and requirements!
