Core Transfer Library

Indiana Core Transfer Library

What is the Core Transfer Library (CTL)?

To enable students to transfer college credits, Indiana has developed the Core Transfer Library - a list of courses that will transfer among all Indiana public colleges and universities.  Transfer of coursework is dependent on the institution's minimum grade requirement for transfer credit.

All CTL courses will meet the general education or free elective requirements of undergraduate degree programs, and a significant majority of CTL courses will also count as one-to-one equivalents to courses taught at your new campus.  For additional information about CTL courses throughout the state, please visit
