Transfer Students

Transferring from one college to another can be challenging. Idaho State University strives to provide a seamless transition as you pursue your educational goals.


A transfer student is one who has been enrolled and received grades at any college or university prior to being admitted to Idaho State University. Students who fit this definition but who are transferring less than 14 academic credits from other institutions to ISU are subject to the admission requirements for new freshmen.

How to Transfer

Transfer students must submit the following to the Office of Admissions:

Transfer Credit Evaluation

All credits earned or attempted and all grades received in college-level courses from accredited institutions are evaluated for possible transfer credit to Idaho State. The applicability of these credits to the student's program of study is determined by their major department. A specific transfer grade point average is calculated separately, and a cumulative GPA is figured combining credits and grades from all previous institutions attended with the same from Idaho State University. Transfer credits from non-U.S. colleges/universities are recorded with grades of satisfactory/unsatisfactory.
