  • Transfer in Iowa – Web Portal Assists Students with Transfers. Iowa’s Regent universities and community colleges have joined to create a web site dedicated to assisting students with the transfer process. The site serves as a one-stop resource for students planning their future. Each year, thousands of students transfer from Iowa community colleges to one of the state’s three public universities. Transferring from one college to the next can be a big step, but need not be complicated. The website contains resources helpful in educational planning as well as information for students to discuss with their counselor or advisor. The number one question for transfer students is how will their credits transfer. Students can learn about how their community college courses transfer to each of the three state public universities by following the links on the website. The website also contains resources explaining statewide articulation agreements and individual program-to-program articulation agreements by community college. These resources are useful for students planning to transfer as well as counselors and advisors. In addition to online resources, it’s always a good idea for students to discuss their plans with both a community college and university counselor or adviser. Contact information for the office or person responsible for transfer and articulation at each postsecondary institution is available on the site. School districts should communicate information about the articulation website to all elementary and secondary school students interested in or potentially interested in attending a community college or Regent university.
