How to transfer courses

Transfer guides for all Iowa and some Illinois community colleges can help you identify which courses will satisfy Tippie’s admissions requirements.

If you earned an AA degree from any Iowa or Illinois community college or Waldorf College, you’ll have met all the Iowa Core Requirements except world language and the Diversity & Inclusion General Education requirement (effective for anyone admitted to Iowa and Tippie Fall 2021 and after).

For courses from any other college or university, use our transfer equivalency tool to find out which courses can help you meet UI requirements. If your course isn't listed, you can request a transfer equivalency review.
