Transfer Credit

Transfer students must meet graduation requirements as described in the graduation section of this Catalog. The academic dean of the college of a program has authority over the transferability and applicability of transfer credit hours to that program. Transfer credit may be re-evaluated when a student changes their degree program.

Only transfer credit hours earned in college-level courses (typically numbered 100 or higher) from regionally accredited colleges or universities will be considered for acceptance. Transfer courses in which a grade of C or higher was earned will be assigned credit. Courses with a grade of C- or below are not transferable.  Additional transfer guidelines are available on the Transfer website.

ISU is a full partner in all state initiatives to enhance transfer:  Statewide Transfer General Education Core, Core Transfer Library (CTL), Transfer Single Articulation Pathways (TSAP), and E-Transcript.

Statewide Transfer Initiatives

Core Transfer Library (CTL).  Students who successfully complete CTL courses at Indiana public and participating private institutions can transfer those courses to Indiana State University to meet general education, or in some cases, major or elective requirements. For a list of participating institutions and to see how courses transfer, visit Transfer IN.net.

Statewide Transfer General Education Core.  Successful completion of the Statewide Transfer General Education Core at an Indiana public institution of higher education transfers as a block of 30 credit hours towards completion of Foundational Studies requirements at Indiana State University.

Transfer Single Articulation Pathways.  Transfer students who have completed an eligible Transfer Single Articulation Pathway (TSAP) program and have been admitted to the corresponding baccalaureate program at Indiana State University are granted a block of 60 credit hours from the respective associate degree. TSAPs are degree completion programs that enable students to earn a baccalaureate degree after completing an additional 60 credit hours as required by the respective major.  For more information about TSAPs at Indiana State University, see below.

Associate Degree Waivers

If you have earned an Associate of Arts (A.A.), Associate of Science (A.S.), or Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree, you will be granted a waiver that applies to several of Indiana State University’s Foundational Studies requirements.

There are two distinct waivers: one awarded to students who have earned an A.A. or an A.S. degree, and another awarded to students who have earned an A.A.S. degree.  Associate degrees with titles other than these will be evaluated ona a case-by-case basis.

The courses waived in each of these cases, as well as the courses waived for the Statewide Transfer General Eduation Core, can be viewed in the table below:

Military Credit


Credit will be granted by Indiana State University according to the guidelines of the American Council of Education (ACE). The Office of Registration and Records works with the academic departments to determine how credits transfer. If ACE guidelines are in conflict with Indiana State University policies, the latter takes precedence.

Students who have successfully completed college-level studies or Dantes exams while in the military may be eligible to receive credit if their official military transcript indicates attainment of college-level equivalency.

Credit for military training and experience is granted based on official transcripts and/or discharge forms (DD214). Service members (from all branches except the Air Force) using veterans benefits must submit an official Joint Services Transcript. All service members qualify for 2-8 credits, based on completion of basic training and length of service as indicated on the DD214. Two credits are awarded for physical education with completion of basic training. Additional elective credit is granted for service time as follows:

2 credits for 12-15 months service.

3 credits for 16-17 months service.

4 credits for 18-19 months service.

5 credits for 20-21 months service.

6 credits for 22 months or more of service .

A maximum of 63 credits may be granted based on a combination of military service, training, and education. Credit from the Community College of the Air Force is applied per Indiana State University’s standard transfer guidelines for regionally accredited institutions. A maximum of 90 credits may be applied from CCAF and other regionally accredited colleges and universities.

Contact the Office of Registration and Records for more information.

Articulation Agreements (Transfer Agreements)

These are agreements between Indiana State University and the respective institutions on pathways for students to transfer to Indiana State University or to transfer credit to Indiana State University. In addition to meeting any criteria listed in these documents, students must meet Indiana State University’s transfer criteria for their desired major. Look up the transfer requirements for your desired major at Indiana State University’s transfer guidelines. If you represent a college wanting to develop an articulation agreement with Indiana State University, the template for an AA or AS degree is here  and the template for an AAS degree is here .

TSAP (Transfer Single Articulation Pathways)

In 2013 the Indiana legislature enacted Senate Enrolled Act 182, thereby establishing the requirements for a Statewide Transfer General Education Core of at least 30 credit hours. The statue states that each educational institution, in collaboration with the commission for higher education, shall, not later than July 1, 2014, work together to create a single articulation pathway for each programmatic area and implement the single articulation pathways not later than May 15, 2015, for students entering state educational institutions in the fall of 2015. The areas for development must be in which significant numbers of students first obtain an associate of science or an associate of arts degree with the intent of obtaining a related baccalaureate degree.
