Transfer Courses from Purdue Regional Campuses
Although the course names and numbers may be different, courses from Purdue’s regional campuses — Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne, Purdue Calumet, and Purdue North Central — are not included in the Transfer Credit Database.
To determine if a course at a Purdue regional campus is considered equivalent to a course at the Purdue West Lafayette campus or if the course is an acceptable substitute for an FYE requirement, students should talk to an FYE Advisor.
Important things to know about transfer credit from Purdue’s regional campuses:
- The grade will transfer (with the exception of some IUPUI courses – see below for details).
- If the same course has already been taken at the Purdue West Lafayette campus, then the grade from the equivalent courses(s) at a regional campus will replace the grade in grade point average (GPA) calculations and Engineering Admissions Index (EAI) calculations. If the course number is different, an academic advisor will need to request this change by filing an Academic Record Change Form 350.
- If the course does not appear on your myPurdue transcript, then you will need to have the regional campus send an official transcript to the following address: Purdue University, Office of Admissions, 475 Stadium Mall Drive, West Lafayette, IN 47907.
- Students may need to contact the First-Year Engineering Program office in mid-July (contact the FYE Advising Office for exact date) if a prerequisite override is needed for a Fall semester course.
- If the course is the final course required to complete the First-Year Engineering Plan of Study, then the student will need to contact the First-Year Engineering Program office as soon as the credit posts to their myPurdue transcript.
