       Transfer of College Credit into Regent Universities
       Iowa’s Regent universities and community colleges have joined to create a web portal dedicated
       to assisting students with the transfer process. The site serves as a one-stop resource for students
       planning their future. The url for the site is www.transferiniowa.org.
       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 transfer students ask is - How will my 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 contains resources explaining statewide articulation
       agreements and individual program-to-program articulation agreements by community colleges. 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 advisor. Contact information for the office or person responsible
       for transfer and articulation at each postsecondary institution is available on the site.
