Frequently Asked Questions

How does Indiana Tech define a transfer student?

We define a transfer student as anyone who has enrolled in a college course(s) after graduating from high school, regardless of length of time at that institution.

Is there a deadline for application for admission?

There is no application deadline.  Indiana Tech has a rolling admissions process, so apply at any time and we will be in touch to walk you through the process.

Do I need to submit an ACT/SAT score report?

While ACT/SAT scores are not required for admission as a transfer student, you can submit your score reports to be used for scholarship determination.  Electronic score reports can be submitted to

Can I submit an unofficial college transcript?

Yes, you can submit an unofficial college transcript to start with an admission decision and transfer credit evaluation.  The final official transcript from each college attended is required to finalize your enrollment prior to the start of your first semester at Indiana Tech.

What is the difference between an official and unofficial transcript?

Indiana Tech requires that you request to have an official transcript be sent directly from the institution to Indiana Tech in order to finalize enrollment. Any transcript not sent directly to Indiana Tech from each institution is considered an unofficial transcript.  This can include transcripts from your online student account, or official transcripts sent electronically to you instead of to Indiana Tech.

I have already completed college courses through another college, do I have to send in my high school transcript?

Yes, we require your final official high school transcript, unless you have already earned an Associate or Bachelor’s degree from a previous institution. You can reach out to your high school counseling office and have your final official high school transcript sent electronically to or mailed to our main campus in Fort Wayne.

How long will it take for an admission decision and transfer credit evaluation?

Generally speaking, an admission decision can be made within a two-week time period from the submission of an application and necessary transcripts.  The decision is communicated to you personally via email, and a formal acceptance packet is sent via mail within that two-week time frame.  Transfer credit results typically take 48-72 hours to process, and are communicated via email to you when completed.

What are the requirements for admission as a transfer student?

The minimum GPA required for admission into Indiana Tech is a 2.0.  Some academic programs require higher GPA requirements, so you are welcome to contact the transfer counselor for additional information on the GPA required for your academic program of choice.

Am I required to live on campus as a transfer student?

Transfer students, outside of a 50-mile radius of campus who are under the age of 21 or have earned less than 60 college credits, are required to live on campus.

What housing options are available for transfer students?

Transfer students with two or more semesters of attendance at another college are typically placed, based on availability, with non-freshman students in our apartment-style facilities.  Placement isn’t automatically guaranteed, but preference is given towards the apartment-style facilities.
