Incoming Transfer Students

Welcome to the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology. Below, you will find some important information and resources for new students.


At IUPUI, there are two different types of admission:  Dual/Direct admission and University College admission. Students that are admitted to both University College and our School become Dual or Direct admission students.  These students meet with our office and Career Services in order to plan for success and work toward graduation and your future career.

University College is the academic home and advising resource for many students as they prepare for admission to a degree-granting school.  While in University College, students take introductory-level coursework to fulfill the requirements needed to be moved into the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology.  University College students have specialized academic advisors and career consultants available to help you plan for academic success and support you as you work toward transitioning into our school.

More information

New Student Advising :

Our office provides information, guidance, and advice for all freshman students until they fulfill their freshman requirements or specific requirements set by the degree-granting department.  Once you have met the requirements and/or have been accepted into your program, advising will be done by the specific department you are earning your degree from.

Orientation :

Orientation is just the beginning of your future at IUPUI.  All IUPUI students are required to attend orientation as they transition into the University.  Orientation is your first opportunity to meet with your academic advisor.

Credit Review Process:

Understanding your transfer credit can be overwhelming.  Once you are admitted to IUPUI, you will be able to view your Transfer Credit Report in One about two to three weeks after you receive your acceptance.  The Transfer Credit Report will show all courses you have taken (that we’ve received transcripts for), whether the courses will transfer, and how they will transfer – distributed as an IUPUI equivalent course or undistributed credit that doesn’t have an exact match at IUPUI.  Your academic advisor can help you with the process of resolving any undistributed credit and understanding how specific transfer courses count in your program.

Office of Transfer Student Services:

The Office of Transfer Student Services supports all transfer students, after the point of admission, to ensure your success as an IUPUI Jaguar.  They provide unique programming specifically to support transfer students in their transition to IUPUI and throughout their time here.
