Transferring credit

Transferring credit to an IU Online degree program

You may be able to transfer previous coursework to an IU Online degree program and/or receive credit for experiences you've had.

Previously completed coursework is reviewed when you apply. The school or department that houses your major decides how that credit applies to your degree requirements. Up to 64 credit hours from a community college or 90 credit hours from a four-year university can be transferred to an IU degree program.

How will my credit transfer?

The Credit Explorer tool lets you estimate how your course or test credit will transfer to IU.
