We’re glad you are considering transferring to Indiana Wesleyan University. You are joining scores of students who transfer each fall and spring from community colleges, four-year public and private institutions, and other Christian colleges.
At IWU, we are committed to doing the best job we can to make your transition as smooth as possible. We have three admissions counselors dedicated to serving you throughout the transfer process. Tony Stevens, Brittany Moser and Phil Young work hard to help transfer students collect all the information they need to make a smooth transition to IWU. You can reach Tony, Brittany or Phil at 765-677-6507 or by e-mail.
Fill out the online application and Community Values Contract and have the completed Recommendation Form sent to us. Next, have transcripts from each college you have attended sent to the Admissions Office along with the Transfer Information Form.
We encourage transfer students to visit campus so they can connect with faculty and experience our community on a more personal level. We can accommodate visits any weekday during the academic year and can include a meeting with a faculty member or a class visit (we prefer at least 10 days notice to coordinate meetings with professors). We also accept visits on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Faculty appointments are not available on weekends.
Transfer students are eligible for all types of freshman aid except for the Freshman Academic Scholarship and the Valedictorian and Salutatorian Scholarships. However, IWU offers a Transfer Academic Scholarship for students who have completed at least 24 credit hours before enrolling at IWU. An additional $1,000 scholarship is possible for members of Phi Theta Kappa who transfer to IWU.
Indiana Wesleyan University offers transfer students the opportunity to live in a special housing community designed to help them transition into the IWU community. Students learn about the campus and culture of IWU from resident assistants who provide intentional programming opportunities. Theme housing is available for a limited number of non-freshman transfer students, based on a first-come, first-served basis.
IWU’s John Wesley Honors College has designed an honors program for transfer students who are academic high achievers and want to glorify God with their gifts. If you are a college freshman or sophomore with at least 15 credit hours of coursework at an accredited college or university and a collegiate GPA of 3.6 or higher, we encourage you to consider and apply for the Mary C. Dodd Honors Program.
