You are required to complete the Foreign Language requirement for the College of Business if you have not:
- earned an Associate of Arts degree,
- graduated high school between 1985-1991 and have at least 24 credit hours or more earned, or
- graduated high school prior to 1985.
Students may be admitted without this requirement on a conditional basis.
To fulfill the Foreign Language requirement you must:
- complete two years of a foreign language in high school, OR
- complete two semesters of a foreign language in college, AND
- complete intermediate courses of the same foreign language at Iowa.
The following are courses that may be taken at Hawkeye to apply towards the foreign language requirement.
Math Transfer Credits
If you need to complete preparatory work in mathematics, you may wish to complete extra electives at Hawkeye due to the transfer of lower level Algebra classes.
MAT102 Intermediate Algebra and MAT122 College Algebra courses do not apply towards your graduation requirements at the University of Iowa.
Transfer Course Equivalencies
We encourage you to visit a Hawkeye Advisor in Student Services and work with a Transfer Advisor at the University of Iowa to plan the courses you need to take at Hawkeye to transfer to the major of your choice.
These requirements are subject to change without notice. Please check with the University of Iowa for verification of courses.
