Student Admissions

Get your career in gear.

It may seem like an adventure less traveled for the 25+ crowd, but 47 percent of Cyclone undergraduates are taking advantage of the same opportunities as you — especially if you are considering: 

  • Starting work on a bachelor's degree
  • Transferring to Iowa State University from another school
  • Finishing a college degree started some years ago
  • Just taking a few classes for personal growth

If you haven’t had any college coursework before, you’ll need to satisfy our regular freshman admission requirements. If you don’t meet them, you’ll be given individual consideration. If you have previously attempted college coursework, you must meet our normal transfer admission requirements.
