Transfer to Valpo

Every year, Valpo eagerly welcomes approximately 150 transfer students. In fact, roughly 30% of our students enter as transfers. They come for our career-focused programs, our student-focused faculty, and our inclusive, supportive community, and they graduate ready to launch rewarding lives. Ready to be one of them?

We’ve made the transfer college application process as seamless and stress-free as possible. To start your journey, learn about our transfer admissions.


Transfer your potential

“A few things carried over really well from Valpo to here. One of the most obvious is the focus on critical thinking. That was kind of the thesis for my education at Valpo — teaching me how to be a critical thinker.”

Transfer Student FAQ

We will need all official transcripts from all of your colleges that you have attended.  If you have completed less than 24 credits at a college or university, we will also need your official High School transcript.

Transcripts are only considered official if they come directly from your previous school and then directly to Valpo.

You will send your official transcripts electronically to or send them via mail to 1620 Chapel Dr. Valparaiso, IN 46383.
