University of Northern Iowa Transfer Notes
Students are encouraged to use the following information while planning their associate’s degree at Eastern Iowa Community Colleges. This information is intended to assist students in the transfer process to University of Northern Iowa to pursue a bachelor’s degree in biology after the completion of the associate’s degree.
- Students are encouraged to participate in UNI’s Transfer Connection Program.
- Students should refer to UNI’s Transfer Plans of Study for Biology to find recommended general education and elective courses to fulfill
these requirements for the Biology Transfer Major- AS degree.
- UNI has a Non-Western Culture Liberal Arts Core requirement that is not automatically
fulfilled through the completion of an associate’s degree. This course does not have
to be taken prior to transfer, however EICC does offer CLS:121, CLS:150, and HIS:211
that are approved to fulfill this requirement. Students may choose to take one of
these courses as part of their associate’s degree.
- World Language Requirement- UNI requires 2 years of the same world language in high
school with a “C-“ or better in the last term OR 2 semesters of the same world language
in college with a “C-“ or better in the last semester.
- Students interested in teaching science should refer to UNI’s Transfer Plans of Study for Science Teaching to find additional Teacher Education Program requirements.

The transfer of a Transfer Major, AS degree to a four-year college or university is often on a course-by-course articulation. EICC strongly recommends you contact your intended transfer institution for specific transfer information and course recommendations. Transfer Partners ultimately determine the transferability of courses and how they will apply toward bachelor degree progress. Completion of a Transfer Major, AS degree does not guarantee admission to a Transfer Partner. Transfer admission requirements are determined by Transfer Partners. EICC strongly recommends you contact your intended transfer institution for information about admission requirements.
