Articulation agreements make transferring to UIU easier
Transfer students may bring up to 90 total credits from a four-year college OR up to 78 credits from a two-year college. In general, credits can be transferred for all lecture and lab courses at recognized colleges and schools.
If you’re a transfer student, you may be able to benefit from the nearly 100 "articulation agreements" that UIU has with two-year colleges. These agreements set up course equivalency guidelines and transfer plans that make it easier to transfer credits from approved community colleges because UIU has already reviewed the courses and agreed to how many credits will count toward a UIU degree.
The terms of each "articulation agreement" varies, so be sure to talk with your transfer coordinator or the UIU Registrar’s Office about your school’s specific agreement with Upper Iowa. And ask your UIU admission counselor about a free transcript evaluation to determine just how many credits you have already earned toward an Upper Iowa degree. Those transfer credits can apply to however you earn your UIU degree -- on campus, at a center, or through distance education.
Please note that Upper Iowa reserves the right to change or update information about articulation agreements at any time. Complete course descriptions and degree requirements are available in the catalogs. Representatives of colleges that would like to develop articulation agreements with UIU on behalf of their students, please contact Kathy Franken.
