    Admissions Partnership Program

    Students participate in the Admissions Partnership Program (APP) while enrolled at an Iowa community college to take the next step toward a smooth and successful transition to Iowa State University.

AA degree completed?

Successful completion of an Associate of Arts (AA) degree at any Iowa, Illinois, or Minnesota Community College allows students to transfer with junior level status, having met all first-year and sophomore level general education requirements for programs in the Iowa State University College of Liberal Arts and Sciences* and the Ivy College of Business**. With the variation of AA requirements across the states, careful planning with an academic advisor is strongly recommended in order to fulfill requirements.

*Liberal Arts and Sciences programs will require specific numbers of credits in humanities and in natural sciences (work with your ISU admissions counselor for details)

**Ivy College of Business programs will require credits in ethics and in global perspectives (work with your ISU admissions counselor for details)
