Make your move to the Herd.


Turn your education into exactly what you need by transferring to Purdue Fort Wayne. Flexible class schedules. An array of minors and certificates to enhance your education. Opportunities for internships and co-ops (many of them paid) that offer real-world experience. But remember, you’re not on this journey alone, because there’s always support in the Herd.

Pretransfer evaluation

Before you apply.

As a transfer student, you probably already have earned credits—and you want to make sure that they count. In general, your credits will transfer to Purdue Fort Wayne if you earned them

  • at a regionally accredited postsecondary institution,
  • in college-level courses (not remedial or ESL), and
  • while achieving a grade of at least C−.

To qualify for admission, you must also have an overall GPA of at least 2.0 (on a 4.0 scale) from the college you attended. If you’re ready to learn more about how your credits will transfer, we’re ready to help with a pretransfer evaluation.

Military experience

See if you qualify.

In some instances, your military experience may equal college credit. Based on your Joint Service Transcript, and once all credits are transferred through admissions, your college or school will determine if your military service can count toward your degree program.
