You’re a Cyclone in the making
We’re excited that you’re planning to transfer to Iowa State! In Iowa State’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS), you’ll find everything you need to unearth all your potential. Please contact our LAS advising office for information about your degree program requirements. Students are eligible to transfer from an accredited two-or four-year institution. The Office of Admissions, and your academic department or area of interest, can also help guide you concerning your transfer credit evaluation.
Successful completion of an Associate of Arts (AA) degree at any Iowa, Illinois or Minnesota Community College allows students to transfer with junior level status, having met all first-year and sophomore level general education requirements for programs in the Iowa State University College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.* With the variation of AA requirements across the states, careful planning with an academic advisor is strongly recommended in order to fulfill requirements. In some cases an AS degree may be more desirable.
*Liberal Arts and Sciences programs will require specific numbers of credits in humanities and in natural sciences (work with your ISU admissions counselor for details)
