Core 39 and the Core Transfer Library (CTL)

Core 39

An education at the University of Southern Indiana prepares students to lead and make positive contributions to our state and their communities, and to be lifetime learners in a diverse and global society. USI creates graduates that have the discipline-specific expertise required to enter the workforce along with the interdisciplinary intellectual tools necessary to not only adapt to an ever-changing social and labor landscape but to affect the trajectory of that change. The University Core Curriculum is at the center of this mission. Our core prepares a student to be a lifetime learner and part of an educated citizenry ready to solve the complex and interconnected challenges the future holds through courses in the broad traditions of the liberal arts and a common set of experiences that are integrated across the curriculum. In our core, students expand foundational skills in communication and critical thinking, explore how different fields create and use knowledge, broaden their viewpoints through the study of diverse and global perspectives, and refine their writing skills through writing intensive experiences.

Within Core 39, students will complete coursework from three broad categories:

  • Foundation Skills (14 hours)
  • Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science (13 hours)
  • Ways of Knowing (12 hours)

Students will also complete four Embedded Experience courses, which can come from Core 39, the major or minor, or elective coursework.

Core Transfer Library (CTL) Courses and Common Course Numbers

Indiana is working to help students transfer college credits more easily. TransferIN was developed as the state’s official source for course transfer information across campuses and institutions. Indiana’s Core Transfer Library (CTL) is a list of courses that will transfer among all Indiana public college and university campuses, assuming adequate grades. For more information, visit TransferIN.net.

Each public institution will map their unique course numbers to a common course numbering system. The current list of CTL courses at USI, along with the corresponding common course ID, is found here.
