Why Butler?

Transfer WhyNo matter where you started, you can finish your education at Butler University. Every year, we welcome over 100 transfer students into our community, and appreciate the perspective they bring to their education. Maybe Butler was not on your radar when you were first looking at colleges, or maybe you wanted to try a different kind of school first. No matter the reason, we encourage you to visit campus, learn about our academic programs, and ask us questions to find out if Butler is the right place for you.

Quick Facts

College Transfer Credit

Butler University's Office of Registration and Records will evaluate official college transcripts for possible transfer credit. To be transferable, coursework must meet the following criteria:

  • It was earned at a regionally accredited institution.
  • It was 100-level course or higher (excludes online courses).
  • The student received a grade of "C-" or better in the course.

How such credit transfers will be based on an individual evaluation of the coursework. This evaluation will determine whether the course is equivalent to a Butler course. For specific questions, please contact the Office of Registration and Records at
