Transfer Students.

Transfer students are important contributors to the Pioneer International University community, and we value the experience and maturity transfer students bring to the classroom environment. A transfer student is an individual who has studied at another accredited university or college prior to studying at Pioneer International University.

We offer programs to assist you in making a smooth transition to PIU, and to ensure that you have positive experiences socially, personally, and academically. Students wishing to transfer to PIU from another provider must complete the Student Transfer Application form, available on our website or available from the Office of the Registrar.
