Associate of Arts (AA) degree
The University of Northern Iowa accepts the Iowa Lakes Community College AA degree as meeting the general education requirements with the exception of a Capstone course taken at the University as a junior or senior. A non-western culture course is required which can be taken at UNI.  The maximum number of hours accepted from a community college is 65 credits. There is a foreign language requirement for graduation.

Individual Courses
Students planning to transfer without an AA degree can use the equivalency guide provided on the University of Northern Iowa web site. The site has the Iowa Lakes equivalent courses that apply to completing the general education requirements at UNI.
