Pick a Luddy major

When you list an intended major on your application, make sure it’s one of these five:

  • B.S. in Computer Science
  • B.S. in Cybersecurity and Global Policy
  • B.S. in Data Science
  • B.S. in Informatics
  • B.S. in Intelligent Systems Engineering

The B.A. in Computer Science is in the College of Arts and Sciences, not Luddy.

Entering Luddy

You’ll probably start your IU education in University Division or the Center for Students in Transition. Don’t worry, you can still take courses in your intended Luddy major while you work toward meeting the requirements to officially enter Luddy.

Transferring your credits

If you’re admitted to IU, your transcripts will be evaluated to determine if your college coursework translates into credit at IU Bloomington.

Learn how transferring credits works for U.S. transfer students, international transfer students, and intercampus transfer students. You can also see how your credit would transfer by looking at IU’s Credit Transfer Service.

Computer science, informatics, and intelligent systems engineering courses taken at another institution may transfer in as undistributed credit. Talk with your intended major’s academic advisor to see if these courses may be able to count toward your degree.

Learn about Transfer Single Articulation Pathways (TSAP) degrees, which have specific courses that transfer to four-year degree programs.
