Transfer Students

Applicant categories

Applicants to the BSN program are placed into one of three categories.

  • Category A: Core campus applicants

    Core campus applicants are those who have completed at least 51 percent of their prenursing credit hours at IU Bloomington or IUPUI.

  • Category B: Intercampus transfers

    Intercampus transfers are applicants who have completed at least 51 percent of their prenursing credit hours at an IU campus other than IU Bloomington or IUPUI.

  • Category C: Non-IU transfers

    Non-IU transfers are applicants who have completed at least 51 percent of their prenursing credit hours at a school other than IU.

The School of Nursing gives priority to all qualified applicants in category A before considering qualified applicants in categories B and C. In recent years, all spots in the BSN program on the IU Bloomington and IUPUI campuses have been filled by category A applicants.

Credit transfer

If you’re transferring to IU from a public college or university in Indiana, you can use Transfer IN to find out how your credits might transfer from your school to IU.

If you’re transferring from a private college or university in Indiana or an out-of-state school, visit the IU Bloomington Credit Transfer Service to get information about credit transfer.
