Students must be admitted to the prebusiness program of study at the University of Iowa prior to submitting a petition.

Students who petition are included in the pool for review; we make decisions on that pool the first of each month, December through March. Students must complete two steps in order for their petition to be accepted:

  1. Complete the following petition form, including a response to the writing prompt.
  2. Submit a high school transcript to the Office of Admissions.
This can be found in your Admissions Profile in the MyUI student portal.
