You may find support for this dynamic major through STEM initiatives (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) such as scholarship and grant opportunities.
Planning Your Class Schedule
Students should consult with an advisor in Student Services or a faculty advisor to select courses, make a transfer plan, and periodically review their progress towards their degree completion.
Students are also encouraged to contact the admissions office at the college to which they plan to transfer during their first year at Hawkeye in order to obtain specific program and transfer requirements.
Not all courses may be required for or transfer to your future major.
As a science major, it is important to take the two-semester sequences from the same institution.
For example, if you want to major in Biology, take General Biology I and II from Hawkeye to have the best transferability to the regent institutions.
