Do I have to take placement exams?

Students who are transferring math or English credit from a previous college or university are not required to take placement exams. Freshmen enrolling at Indiana Tech upon high school graduation will be required to take a math placement exam. Indiana Tech uses SAT and/or ACT scores to determine English placement and whether a reading placement exam will be required.

What is the difference between an official and unofficial transcript?

A transcript is considered official when it is sent directly from the high school or college in a sealed envelope containing the institution’s official seal or signature. A transcript is considered unofficial if it lacks the institution’s official seal or signature, if it is printed directly from your online student account, or if it is not received in a sealed envelope.

Will all of my credits transfer? Do you have transfer equivalencies?

Generally, non-remedial, 100-level courses or above in which a student earns a C or higher are transferable to Indiana Tech. Courses may transfer in as required credits if we offer an equivalent course and the course is needed for your major, or they may transfer in as elective credits if we do not offer an equivalent course or it is not needed for your major. Different majors require different courses, so we cannot guarantee credit transferability for all courses. You can find the curriculum for all of our majors in our Academic Catalog.

How can I access my transfer credit evaluation?
