Step Two: Have your existing college credits transferred to IU

After beginning your admission process, you may want to know how your previous coursework transfers to IU Bloomington and SPEA specifically. As a transfer student you will receive a credit transfer report upon admission to IU Bloomington. This report lists all courses that transfer and the IU equivalent to those courses, but you can get a preview before you get your official report through the IU Office of Admissions.

Step Four: Admission to SPEA

Once you are admitted to IU Bloomington, you will need to apply for admission into SPEA.
