Disclaimer: While we strive to provide accurate information, the articulation of courses between schools can change frequently. Accordingly, the information provided in the Office of Admissions' Credit Transfer Service is subject to change.

Limitations of Database: We include the articulations of over 30,000 courses from more than 300 schools. However, not every school in the world or even in the U.S. is in the database, nor is every course available from those schools that are listed in the system. What is there represents the most commonly occurring articulations that we process. If the school, department, or course you need is not found, and you are a current IU student, you can use the credit transfer agreement to request an individual articulation. The directions for its use are included with the form. You must meet the deadlines published on the form to receive this advanced articulation.

Credit Transfer Agreement (CTA) Policies and Information: If the courses you wish to transfer to IU are listed on the Credit Transfer Service web page, you should not complete a CTA form. You can simply print your shopping cart of courses and keep it for your personal record. Your academic advisor also has access to this system and can print a copy of your shopping cart for your file.

If you are sure your school or course is not in our data base and you are a current IU student, you can request an individual articulation by downloading and mailing us the completed Credit Agreement form, along with the course descriptions.  You can go directly to the instructions and the form by following the link.
* Please note: If you will be an incoming freshman for the fall semester, credit cannot be evaluated until you have submitted your enrollment deposit.

UNDI Courses: Even if IU doesn't offer a course equivalent to the one you took, we are often able to grant you credits in the corresponding IU department. These are called "undistributed" (UNDI) credits because we can't give them a specific IU course number. In addition, most courses in fine arts, music, Slavic languages, East Asian languages, and 300-400 level business are transferred to IU as undistributed according to these departments' instructions. The decision as to how UNDI courses will fit into your degree program is made by the school/division in which you are pursing your degree. Please contact them for additional information.

IU Credit Explanation: Not all of our articulations in our database display the IU Credits you will receive. Once again, this is a limitation of our database. When you see a zero, this does not necessarily mean you will not receive IU credit. The purpose of this web site is to show you which courses will transfer in. If your school is on a semester system, then the course hours will transfer the same, but if your school is on the quarter system, then the course hours will be reduced by two-thirds. If your school's course credit is given as a "unit", then there should still be a semester or quarter hour equivalency and the previous statement still applies.
