Once you have been admitted, an official credit evaluation will be performed and sent to you, usually within two weeks. The evaluation will list courses you have taken and any IUP equivalents. This first phase of the credit transfer process shows you how many of your credits will appear on your IUP transcript. Please remember that this is unofficial until we receive your final official transcript(s).
The second phase of understanding your credit transfer relates specifically to your chosen major. You must use the IUP catalog to determine which courses fulfill the specific requirements within your major. Your department has authority over the application of credits toward your degree and can help to clarify those courses that do not fit clearly within the constraints of the major once you matriculate.
You are able to work with the Online Credit Evaluation System any time to determine, unofficially, how your courses will transfer. This system shows all courses that have been evaluated previously and their IUP equivalents. Courses that are not in this system have not been evaluated but may still be transferable. Your official evaluation will include all classes on your transcript.
If you believe a course was evaluated incorrectly, you can submit a reevaluation form with a syllabus for the course in question. The form and syllabus for each course submitted for review should be taken to the Office of Transfer Services, Sutton Hall, Room G26, for consideration.
You may pick up a form in Sutton Hall, Room G26, or download the Request for Review of Transfer Credits form.
Once you are admitted, you are asked to make a $150 tuition deposit to hold your place in the class. You will be invited to one of four New Transfer Student Advisement and Registration days during the summer. This one-day program will introduce you to the registration process, provide an informal advisement session with college faculty and representatives, and allow you to register and leave with a schedule at the end of the day. Because of course registration restrictions, you can only register on these selected days.
Students unable to attend a summer registration day will register during late registration, the day before classes begin each semester.
If you are considering transferring to IUP, but will attend your current institution for a semester or more before making the transition, you should plan your schedule so that the courses will transfer and satisfy your graduation requirements at IUP. Again, using the Online Credit Evaluation System and the IUP catalog will help you to select the best courses to take.
For students attending community colleges, to aid in your scheduling, we have listed courses that fulfill many of IUP’s requirements for graduation. View our community college guides.
Planning will help you to earn your degree in a timely manner.
