Transfer Majors

Iowa Lakes Community College now offers transfer majors for students who want to transfer to one of Iowa’s regent universities (Iowa State University, the University of Iowa, or the University of Northern Iowa).

Transfer Major at Iowa Lakes

Each Associate of Arts or Associate of Science transfer major degree is designed for students transferring to a four-year institution to study a specific major and to provide the first two years of a bachelor’s degree program. By earning this degree, you’ll have met the general course requirements for a specific major of a four-year institution. Requirements may vary among institutions so students should become familiar with specific requirements of the institution which they plan to transfer.

To earn a Transfer Major Degree, a student must complete all required coursework of that specific major and maintain a 2.0 GPA.

Transfer Options

Are you looking to obtain a Bachelor’s degree or higher? Iowa Lakes Community College is a great first step toward reaching your ultimate goal. Many of our courses are designed for transfer credibility.

Planning is the key to a smooth transfer. Meet with your transfer school early to learn their requirements. Then, start working with your Iowa Lakes advisor to plan the courses you need to transfer into your major.

Completing an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree makes it easy to transfer to another college or university. For many private colleges and universities in Iowa and surrounding states, you can transfer as a junior after meeting your freshman and sophomore requirements. Then you’ll complete the last two years of your bachelor’s degree.

The Associate in Arts (AA) degree is generally accepted as the first two years of college, but may vary by institution. The Associate in Science (AS) degree and Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree are typically transferred on a course-bycourse basis. Students who plan to transfer should contact the college or university to which they plan to transfer to ensure that core courses they take will transfer into their intended major.
