The following are general guidelines. Upon admission, academic advisors review transcripts to determine which credit transfers and which courses will be included in the student's program of study.
- Credit earned from regionally accredited colleges or universities is transferable.
- Technical skills courses in an A.A.S. program may not transfer; however, any credit earned in general education, liberal arts, or liberal studies may be transferable.
- Transfer credit is assigned only for courses in which the student has earned a grade of "C" or higher.
- Generally, an equivalent number of credits are given.
- In some cases, credit may be transferable to the University, but may not be applied toward completion of the Cybercriminology and Security Studies Program.
- Remedial, audited, or non-credit courses do not transfer. This may include courses that apply credit towards graduation at the source institution, if they are determined to be equivalent to remedial courses at ISU.
- College living, orientation, and study classes will transfer for credit if they received credit towards graduation at the source institution.
- Up to 90 credits of total transfer credit will be accepted for transfer into a bachelor degree program; at least 30 credits must be completed through ISU to earn the bachelor degree.
