Transfer Students

Know what your options are.

At IPFW, there are different categories of transfer students based on what institutions you attended previously:

IU or Purdue Intercampus Transfer Students

If you’re a transfer student from within the IU or Purdue campus-wide systems, you’re known as an “intercampus transfer student” and classified as either temporary or permanent.

Permanent Intercampus Transfer Students

If you’re currently attending (or have attended) another IU or Purdue campus and want to transfer permanently to IPFW, please submit the following:

  • Application for Undergraduate Admission
  • An unofficial transcript from your IU or Purdue campus
  • Official transcripts from any college attended since your enrollment at IU or Purdue
  • No application fee is due
  • Permanent intercampus transfer students may be eligible for financial aid

Temporary Intercampus Transfer Students

If you're currently attending (or have attended) another IU or Purdue campus and want to transfer temporarily to IPFW, please submit the following:

  • Application for Undergraduate Admission
  • An unofficial transcript from your IU or Purdue campus
  • Official transcripts from any college attended since your enrollment at IU or Purdue
  • No application fee is due

Transfer Students from Other Colleges or Universities
