How Do My Courses Transfer?

If you took, or plan to take, course work at another college or university, use this equivalency guide to determine how those courses transfer to The University of Iowa. Not all courses may be included. Evaluations for transfer courses not on this list will be completed at the time of admission to Iowa.

UI General Education Requirements: http://clas.uiowa.edu/students/general-education-program-requirements

Please note the following with respect to the unofficial transfer credit evaluation pages:

Searches for the Values and Culture or Diversity and Inclusion General Education Areas are currently unavailable. Please use Transferology to find transfer courses that satisfy these two requirements.

Physical Education courses (such as Badminton, Tennis, and Weight Training) are not counted toward the requirements of the General Education Program, although they may still display in the search results. These courses will continue to count as electives and toward the 120 semester hours needed for graduation from The University of Iowa.

Only course equivalencies, general education or elective credit designations will be displayed. Combinations of courses used to satisfy requirements or partial equivalencies are not being displayed at this time.

Please contact us at admissions-ugmail@uiowa.edu if you have questions about course combinations or partial equivalencies. Thank you.
