Transfer Students

Transferring to the IU School of Nursing

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program can be completed on any Indiana University campus, including IU Bloomington, IUPUI, and regional IU campuses. The Bloomington, Indianapolis (IUPUI), and Fort Wayne (IUFW) campuses make up the School of Nursing's Core campuses. The admission requirements for the BSN program are similar for the Core campuses and students may apply to any of the three campuses, provided they have met the specific prerequisites for that campus.

Transferring to IU Bloomington

If you plan to transfer from another IU campus or another university to apply to the BSN program at IU Bloomington, your first step is to talk to a nursing advisor, who will guide you through the transfer application process. It is extremely important that you speak with a nursing advisor before taking any other action.

Admission preference for the traditional BSN is given to students who have completed 51% of the application courses at an IU Core campus (IUB, IUPUI, and IUFW). For admission to the School of Nursing, students will need to complete nine courses or 29-31 credit hours. Therefore, transfer students need to list at least five courses or 15 credit hours from a Core campus to be considered a priority applicant. If additional seats are available, students who have completed fewer than 51% of their application courses at a Core campus will be considered for admission.
