Transfer Resources

Transfer Tools

Transferring to UNI from an Iowa community college? Check out our Transfer Plans of Study to help with understanding course requirements and recommendations.

We've also put together lists of courses found in current catalogs from other select institutions along with information on how those courses transfer to UNI. To compare transfer courses with equivalent UNI courses, check out our Transfer Course Equivalency Lists or Transfer Plan-It tools. Please note that these lists do not include all colleges outside of the state of Iowa. If you do not see your college or the course listed, please contact the Office of Admissions, as all courses have not been previously evaluated.

Majors with Additional Requirements

Some majors have additional requirements to get into upper-level courses—Education, Business, Music and Social Work are a few.
