Transfer Students

All transfer students are required to speak with a DSO at Indiana Tech. We cannot consider or accept a transfer until you speak with the International Office.

Transferring to Indiana Tech – Already in the United States
  1. Reach out to your Indiana Tech International Admissions Counselor in order to advise that you are a transfer student. All transfers must speak with a DSO before we can start this process.
    1. On your initial application, it should have asked if you are a transfer student. If you are not sure about your answer to this, please email intlgradadmissions@indianatech.edu to confirm you are planning to transfer. Please advise us on the following:
      1. When you entered the United States
      2. When your classes started
      3. If you are currently attending classes
      4. The date your classes end
  2. Once you complete your current semester, you will want to provide the acceptance letter along with the signed transfer form to your current International Advisor so that they can complete the form and return this to our office via email.
    1. NOTE: you cannot transfer until you have received acceptance from Indiana Tech.
  3. Once we receive your transfer form, we will review and advise your current school if you are eligible to transfer to Indiana Tech.
    1. Note: We do not accept transfers of students who are out of F-1 status. Upon first entering the United States you must start classes within 30 days. After that, you must have started classes and transfer within five months of your last class to be considered.
    2. We must approve the transfer before your SEVIS record can be accepted.
  4. At that point, your current school will transfer your SEVIS record to Indiana Tech and we can then process your transfer I-2o.
    1. All transfers are due the Friday before orientation in order to give us enough time to process your request prior to your arrival to campus. No exceptions.
Transferring to Indiana Tech Outside the United States

  4. Once we receive your transfer form, we will review and advise your current school if you are eligible to transfer to Indiana Tech.
