Once you've decided that Iowa State is where you want to continue your education you will need to apply to the University. Once accepted the credits you earned at a community college or other university will be evaluated, your advisor can help you plan out the rest of your schooling so you can achieve your educational goals.
Transfer students are warmly welcomed in the Educator Preparation Program at Iowa State University. Each university offers different options to become a teacher; ISU offers Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education programs. Once you know the type of teacher you would like to become, you can determine the courses that are required to earn a bachelor’s degree and get a teaching license.
We are available to help you get a preliminary idea of what credits will transfer and what courses they will count as in the ISU catalog are ISU's Course Equivalency Guides and the application TRANSIT.
Course Equivalency Guide
A course equivalency guide may be prepared for your community college. You can use the guide to see what your coursework will transfer in as. If you are not yet ready to apply to Iowa State, you can use the guide to plan out course work at your current school so that you maximize your transfer credit when you do transfer to ISU.*
Course Equivalency Guides
If transferring from outside of the state or if a course equivalency guide is not listed for your school, use the ISU TRANSIT application. TRANSIT is an online system which displays how your credits may transfer to Iowa State from a community college or other university. Hundreds of transfer agreements with colleges around the country help create a seamless transition to Iowa State.*
After you start at ISU and once you meet the requirements you can apply to the Educator Preparation Program.
