Transfer Students

We welcome transfer students to discover what IC can offer you, with the opportunity to Graduate READY for the career of your dreams.


We know that it may be difficult to access official academic records during this time. That is why we have made the decision to temporarily accept unofficial academic records. This includes high school and college transcripts, ACT/SAT scores, and AP or IB scores. Admission and scholarship decisions will be made with this information pending the receipt of official records prior to enrollment. 

Transfer students may apply for either the fall semester or the spring semester. Completed applications for admission must be submitted by August 1 for the fall semester and January 1 for the spring semester. Review begins when an application is complete.

Complete the following steps to start your journey to Graduate READY.

1. Submit a FREE application for admission
2. Request Official Final High School Transcript to be sent to IC
  • High school transcript must include final senior year grades
  • Transcript must indicate date of graduation
3. Request Official College Transcript of all college coursework attempted
  • Student who attended more than one college must submit official transcripts from each institution.

The specific minimum requirements for transfer students include the following:

  • Graduation from an accredited four-year high school or the equivalent with at least 15 units of credit
  • Verification of good academic standing at the institution from which the applicant wishes to transfer
  • A minimum 2.5 GPA for their most recent full time semester of college- level course work and a minimum cumulative 2.5 GPA for all college level coursework attempted
  • A minimum of 24 transferable credits completed. If 24 credits have not been completed the student’s high school record will also be evaluated
