About Transfer Central

Helping transfer students succeed at IUPUI

Transfer Central helps transfer students make a successful transition to IUPUI. Led by the Office of Transfer Student Services, Transfer Central connects prospective and admitted transfer students with the IUPUI offices that serve transfer students, including the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, Passport: Ivy Tech and IUPUI Coordinated Programs, the Degree Completion Office, the Office for Veterans and Military Personnel, and Orientation Services.

Transfer Central serves all types of transfer students, including:

  • Transfer students from four-year institutions
  • Transfer students from community colleges
  • Intercampus transfer students
  • Returning adult students
  • Military veterans

We’re making the transfer student experience at IUPUI even better

In fall 2014, IUPUI partnered with the John N. Gardner Center for Excellence in Undergraduate Education to conduct a yearlong study on how to improve transfer student learning and success. The findings are detailed in the 2015 Foundations of Excellence report.
