Transfer Guidelines

Transfer credit is granted according to the guidelines listed below for those enrolling in the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Nursing Division of Pre-licensure Programs.

  1. Credit is earned on coursework completed at an approved college or university at the same level. An "approved college or university" generally refers to those institutions that are accredited by a regional accrediting body or the Association for Biblical Higher Education.
  2. Credits from unaccredited colleges and universities and from schools/colleges/universities not accredited at the same level (such as business schools, vocational/technical schools or other single-purpose institutions) may be assessed individually for possible credit. The number of credits transferable from such institutions will be limited to two years (62 semester hours).
  3. Credits earned from international institutions will require submission of transcripts and course syllabi for external evaluation by Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE). For more information about this organization, please visit their website (
  4. Credit taken by correspondence from an accredited institution may be applied toward a degree at IWU, for a maximum of 12 semester hours accepted.
  5. Credit hours accepted in transfer are recorded, but quality points and grades are omitted and used only for the purposes of graduating with honors.
  6. Coursework must have a grade of "C" or higher and be a 100-level course or higher.
  7. Coursework is applicable to the curriculum you wish to pursue at Indiana Wesleyan University.
  8. If there is not an equivalent course, the credits may be applied as undistributed credit.
  9. All students must complete their last 30 credit hours at IWU.
  10. The university registrar is responsible to approve the transferability of all credits.

Transfer Planning Tool is a free online tool that can assist you in determining how courses may transfer between institutions. It also provides an opportunity to review programs, enter coursework and, if applicable, create an evaluation of transfer work toward a desired program. This tool currently uses information from Indiana schools as they have supplied. This is a database in process so there may be courses not listed. However, it is still likely that they would transfer following the guidelines established by IWU. Click here to go to and see how your courses will transfer.
