Details about Transferring Credit to Purdue
  • Credit evaluation will be completed after you are admitted.

  • Graduate-level coursework will not transfer to an undergraduate record.

  • Credit is granted only once for duplicated courses.  This does not apply to repeatable courses.

  • Not all courses will transfer and/or apply to every major. You must see your academic advisor for additional information about transferring credit to your chosen major.

  • Courses listed as 1XXXX, 2XXXX, etc., are transferred as undistributed credit and not an exact match.

  • Credit that is granted for “pass” “satisfactory” or “credit” at institutions that do not stipulate a  C- or better grade will not transfer.

  • Only credit transfers. Grades do not.

  • The only way to replace grades taken at Purdue is to retake the course at Purdue (or at one of its regional campuses or IUPUI). Course credit transferred from an institution outside of Purdue (and its regional campuses) does not replace course grades for equivalent courses at Purdue.

  • Effective Fall 1993, only selected pre-approved courses are transferable from Ivy Tech Community College. Courses taken prior to fall 1993 are not transferable.

  • Effective fall 2004, Agriculture and Natural Resources courses from non-land grant institutions will be sent to the College of Agriculture for evaluation.  Courses will be loaded at a later date if approved.

  • Per the School of Management, upper division Economics courses, Management courses and Organizational Behavior & Human Resource Management courses that are 300 level or above can be transferred as undistributed credit only.

  • Purdue University School of Nursing does not accept credits from non-baccalaureate nursing programs. Please contact School of Nursing at 765-494-4008 if you have questions.

  • No credit is granted for military training programs. A minimum of six months active duty is required to receive credit for military duty. Please submit a copy of your DD-214 (or an LES, if still active duty). 

  • No credit is granted by Purdue for technical or military programs earned at the Community College of the Air Force.

  • Credit by exam from another institution does not transfer to Purdue. For credit from exams such as AP or CLEP that are listed on another institution’s transcript, students must send Purdue an official score report directly from the testing service.
