Transferring to IU Kokomo
Each year we welcome many students who choose to transfer to IU Kokomo from other colleges and universities, or from other campuses of IU. At IU Kokomo, we are happy to work with you to see how your previous college credits will apply to the academic program you wish to pursue on our campus.
How to Transfer to IU Kokomo
If you are interested in transferring to IU Kokomo from an institution outside the IU system, you can apply using our online application or you can print out an application for admission. In addition to your application and fee, be sure to send us your official transcripts from all previous institutions. To help with requesting your official transcripts, you can send them the transcript request form. Please send applications and transcripts to the Office of Admissions either by mail or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you are a previous IU Kokomo student, update your information by filling out the personal information update form and schedule an appointment with the Office of Student Success and Advising at 765/455-9405. If you are interested in transferring to IU Kokomo from another IU campus, you can submit your transfer request using the online IU intercampus transfer form.
