If you have enrolled in any college-level coursework since graduating from high school, you are considered a transfer student. Last year, almost one-third of our entering class transferred to Iowa State from other schools.

Explore TRANSIT, 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.

Once you're at Iowa State, we offer special transfer orientation and new student programs just for you.
