Frequently Asked Questions
- How does UE welcome transfer and non-traditional students into the campus community?
We know it can be rough starting at a new school, so students who were once transfers and non-traditional students at UE have come together to ease the transition for new students. The Mentor group plans outings and get-togethers to build community and help new students feel welcome and supported. UE also hosts orientation each semester for new students.
- How do I request official transcripts?
To complete your application for admission, UE needs official transcripts from all colleges that you have attended. Transcripts must be OFFICIAL, meaning sent from your school directly to the UE Office of Admission. Transcripts may be sent in a variety of ways including:.
- How will my classes transfer?
Once you are admitted, we will send you a transfer credit evaluation that shows how many hours will transfer, how many will apply toward graduation, and how many you need to complete your degree. Most courses in which you have earned at least a “C-” will transfer to UE. For more information on UE's transfer credit policies, see the Office of the Registrar's webpage.
To aid you in determining transfer credits, please see the following resources:
The course equivalency guide provides a list of formerly transferred credits to the University of Evansville. The list is not comprehensive but is representative of course equivalencies at this point.

Tuition, fees, room and board costs, and a cost calculator are available on UE's Student Financial Services webpage. UE is an exceptional value and has received many recognitions and ranking because of it. Our graduates are excelling too; 98 percent were either employed or in graduate school six months following graduation! Read more about the value of a UE education.
- Does UE offer scholarships?
Yes! Please find transfer scholarships on UE's Student Financial Services webpage. Transfer freshmen (students who graduated from high school and attended a college or university the fall semester immediately following high school graduation and transfer to UE for the spring semester) are typically eligible for freshman academic merit scholarships. If you were an admitted fall freshman applicant, did not enroll at UE, but decide to transfer for the spring semester, UE will typically honor your original freshman scholarship and financial aid award!

These fields must be entered to ensure you are receiving proper information.

- Do UE and Ivy Tech have a Reverse Transfer Agreement?
Yes, we do. The University of Evansville and Ivy Tech Community College have partnered to create a statewide reverse transfer agreement for students who have transferred to UE prior to completing their associate degree at Ivy Tech. Once the student has attained 75 or more total credit hours (including the minimum of 15 from Ivy Tech), they will be notified each semester of their potential eligibility for an Ivy Tech associate degree through reverse transfer until they opt in or opt out.
