Transfer Students

Your financial success as a Jaguar starts here

Thank you for choosing to finish your degree at IUPUI. We’re excited to have you as part of our community. We know that finances are a crucial part of your success as a Jaguar, and we’re here to provide you with the resources and information you need to navigate this part of your educational journey. Your personalized Financial Aid Notification (FAN) will help you understand your financial aid awards and prepare for financial success.

What is a FAN?

Your FAN shows the estimated financial aid awards available to you for your first year at IUPUI. You’ll be able to see your financial aid for each semester and a total for the whole year. Your FAN also gives you details about your financial aid eligibility, expected costs, and other important information.

Finalizing your financial aid

Academic performance and your aid eligibility

The financial aid awards on your FAN are estimated. Before you can receive your financial aid, we must make sure that you’re meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards. The SAP review process for transfer students will be completed by July 1 and will include any hours accepted for transfer to IUPUI. If you are not meeting SAP standards, your financial aid will be cancelled but you can appeal to have your financial aid reinstated. Please contact us at if you have questions about your SAP status.

Aid eligibility for state grant recipients

If you are a Frank O’Bannon Grant or 21st Century Scholarship recipient, you must complete the required credits to maintain your award – 24 credits in an academic year for Frank O’Bannon recipients, and 30 credits for 21st Century Scholars. We may not know how many credits you’ve completed until after the end of the spring semester. So, your state aid may not appear on your FAN yet. We’ll add it to your FAN once the state of Indiana confirms your credit completion status. You can review your ScholarTrack account to check on your status.

Completing federal verification

The Department of Education randomly selects some FAFSAs for an additional review process called federal verification. If you're selected, we're required to collect documentation from you to confirm the information on your FAFSA. Check your To Do List on One.IU to see what documents are required and to find important details on how to complete them. Also monitor your IU email regularly. We'll reach out to you by email if we need any additional information.
