Transfer Credit

The Office of the University Registrar has the charge of evaluating and placing transfer credit on the student's academic record. Total transfer hours applied to a degree program is 90 hours from a 4-year school or a combination of 2-year/4-year. Maximum from a community/junior college is 70 academic hours.

Students who have earned a baccalaureate-oriented associate degree from a regionally accredited institution in the United States will be considered to have met the General Education requirements.

The evaluation and placement of transfer credit will be completed after students have been accepted to the University. Continuing students who enroll in courses at another institution in the summer should request that an official transcript be sent to the Evaluations Office after summer grades are awarded. Students planning on taking courses at another school (other than Illinois community colleges) to be transferred to ISU for their major/minor should send an email to and include the following information: student's UID, transfer school name, course abbreviation, number and title; and the specific major/minor/graduation/GE requirement you are attempting to complete with this course.
