Below are links to information you will find helpful as you consider and plan for transferring to Iowa State University.
As soon as you have completed your application for Eastern Iowa Community Colleges you may enroll in the ISU/EICC Admissions Partnership Program. This program offers a number of benefits to students including a customized degree plan and degree progress reports at the completion of each semester while you earn your Associate's Degree. To learn more about this program, contact Academic Advising at your community college.
How does an AA degree from Eastern Iowa Community Colleges transfer to ISU?
The Associate in Arts Degree transfers and satisfies the general education requirements for students pursuing a degree offered by the ISU College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, when the AA degree includes courses to fulfill ISU's foreign language requirements and diversity requirements. Academic Advising at your community college can assist you in identifying the specific courses that will fulfill these ISU requirements.
The Associate in Arts Degree also transfers and meets general education requirements for students pursuing a degree offered by the ISU College of Business. The AA degree must include an ethics course as well as a course that will fulfill ISU's Global Perspectives requirement. Academic Advising at your community college can assist you in identifying the specific courses that will fulfill these ISU requirements as well.
How does an AS degree from Eastern Iowa Community Colleges transfer to ISU?
The Associate in Science Degree may be a better choice when a student is pursuing a bachelor's degree that requires more math and science courses. The AS degree transfers on a course-by-course basis. This means that ISU will consider each course individually to determine the ISU general education requirements that have been satisfied. Students pursuing an AS degree therefore need to know exactly how each course will transfer and how each course will fulfill the general education requirements of their intended major at ISU. Academic Advising at your community college can assist you with this.
Through Transfer in Iowa you can enter courses you have completed or will complete at your community college, and see how they will transfer to ISU.
