Transferring from an IU or Purdue campus

If you plan to transfer to IUPUI from another campus in the Indiana University system, you’ll apply for an intercampus transfer. If you plan to transfer from a Purdue University campus, you will follow the process for students transferring from four-year schools outside the IU system, which is outlined on this page.

After applying

You can expect to find out whether you’ve been admitted to IUPUI within four to six weeks after we receive all your application materials.

Approximately two weeks after we receive your application, you’ll get an email with your University ID number. You’ll use this ID number to create your IUPUI computing account, which you’ll use to check the status of your application.

Please note that your IUPUI computing account is different than the guest computing account you created when you applied online. The guest computing account was solely for the purpose of submitting your application online.

  • Setting up your computing account

    Go to One.IU, search for “create my first IU account” and select that task. You’ll then be able to create your username and passphrase, passphrase reset questions, and email address. Be sure that the email address you create is for IUPUI.

  • Checking your application status

    After you’ve created your IUPUI computing account, you’ll be able to check the status of your application in One.IU. To check your status, go to Application Status in One.IU and select “Start.” Log in using your IUPUI username and passphrase (not your guest account information) to see the status of your application.

You must submit your application for admission and supporting materials by the priority deadline to receive full consideration for the term in which you want to begin attending IUPUI.
