Transferring your college credit from another university to AU.

Anderson University values the hard work that students put in before starting classes on campus and seeks to find a place for each person to connect. Our open and welcoming community can be especially appealing to students transferring from another school or associate program.

In order to further welcome these students to the AU community, students transferring to AU can now receive up to $16,000 per year in merit scholarships, up from a previous cap of $14,500.

Next Steps

Everything you need to take the next steps as a transfer student.

Explore 3-year Majors

In real life, plans change. AU’s 3-year-degrees give you the flexibility to change your major or add new courses without staying in college past the normal 4 years. 

Associate Degree Policy

You’ve spent two years earning a degree, and we think that ought to mean something. If you arrive on campus with an associate of arts or an associate of science from a regionally accredited college or university, we’ll consider your liberal arts requirements complete.

Core Transfer Library

Anderson University is also a part of Indiana’s Core Transfer Library (CTL). This means we try to make it as easy as possible to transfer your credits.

Your AU Story Begins Now

I transferred into AU before the start of my junior year. My greatest fear and challenge that faced me was being able to make great friends and integrate smoothly into Anderson University. It is safe to say I have done that. I am in my senior year now and I live off campus with five of the best friends I could ask for. I have a wide circle of friends that stand by me no matter what, and God provided me with an endless amount of opportunities to plug into.

I started my collegiate career at a different school, and by the end of my freshman year, I realized something was missing. I wanted a campus that was more Christ-centered and a place that I could have genuine relationships with people. Then I heard about AU. Immediately when I got onto campus it was clear that God’s presence was here. I’ve met some of my best friends here, and I look forward to pouring into people and growing in my faith.

What I love most about AU is the community aspect. The professors here really care about your goals, and they really dig deep to understand who you are as opposed to seeing you as another number in a lecture hall. The students here love to say ‘Hi!’ They’re really community oriented, and people actually want to know how you’re doing. It’s really a community that I had wanted all along and couldn’t find when I was just a number in a sea of 40,000 people.
