William Penn University

William Penn University LogoIn continuing to build opportunities for students to achieve affordable pathways to a baccalaureate degree and beyond, William Penn University (WPU) and Indian Hills Community College (IHCC) have created a transfer pathway to provide a guaranteed admission track if the admissions requirements are met for international students who graduate from Indian Hills with an Associate of Arts (AA) or an Associate of Science (AS) degree.


Participants Benefit in the following ways:

  • International students who have graduated from IHCC with an Associate of Arts degree (minimum 2.00 GPA) will be considered sufficiently proficient in English, meeting William Penn University's minimum TOEFL/IELTS/PTE requirements.

  • International students transferring from It-ICC to WPU, will otherwise be subject to the terms and guidelines for admission to each institution and be given no additional preferential treatment with respect to the admissions process or scholarships.

  • The WPU Registrar's Office will be available to assist international students at IHCC with appropriate academic advising related to the student's intended plan of study while at IHCC.

  • International students will qualify to receive the following scholarships from WPU per academic year depending on GPA level upon transfer from IHCC to WPU. This scholarship is only applicable for fulltime enrollment and cannot be stacked with other institutional scholarships. At least 24 transferrable credits must be approved by WPU before this scholarship can be awarded. These scholarships are subject to annual renewal criteria.
