Students seeking a degree in one of these majors must be admitted to the College of Humanities, Arts, and Sciences at UNI.

Transfer Course Equivalencies

The requirements and the prerequisites to be admitted to the College of Humanities, Arts, and Sciences vary by major. We encourage you to visit a Hawkeye Advisor in Student Services and work with your UNI advisor to plan the courses you need to take at Hawkeye to transfer to the major of your choice.

The following course recommendations are for students pursuing their Liberal Arts AA degree at Hawkeye.

If you are pursuing your AAS degree, please read the additional information below to learn how your credits will transfer.

NOTE: All courses towards a major in the Department of Technology must be a "C" or higher.

These requirements are subject to change without notice. Please check with UNI for verification of courses.

* While some chemistry and physics classes are available at Hawkeye to fit the major, in many cases the more appropriate course would be taken at UNI.

** Students should avoid taking a Chemistry class while at Hawkeye. There is a required Chemistry course for which no credit will be awarded for if a student has credit for college level chemistry course.

Liberal Arts Core

Students completing the Associate of Arts degree, following the specifications of the community college and meeting all conditions of the articulation agreement, will meet the UNI Liberal Arts Core (LAC) requirements with the following exceptions:

  1. CAPSTONE must be completed at UNI after transfer.

  2. A course in NON-WESTERN CULTURES must be completed either at the community college or at UNI.

    • CLS-130 African Cultures
    • CLS-141 Middle Eastern History and Culture
    • CLS-150 Latin American History and Culture
    • CLS-160 East Asian History and Culture
    • CLS-164 Japanese History and Culture
    • CLS-172 Russian Civilization
  3. FOREIGN LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT (for students graduating from high school or earning a GED in 1989 and later). Two years of the same high school foreign language are required with C- or better in the last term, or the student may take two semesters of the same foreign language in college with a C- or better in the second course. This requirement may be met by FLS-151 Spanish I and FLS-152 Spanish II.

AAS Degree Transfers

Hawkeye students working towards an AAS degree can typically transfer 16 hours of ungraded tech credit. However, with the Technology Management program, a block of 37–61 credit hours may be transferred through an articulated program-to-program agreement with the Department of Technology at UNI. For these students, the AAS degree works as a portion of the major and they will complete the remainder of the major along with general education requirements in the final two years at UNI. Students following this path will want to work with an advisor and take transfer classes when possible (e.g. ENG-105 in place of COM-781, PSY-111 in place of PSY-102).

Students may transfer up to 65 credits to UNI, and at least 60 credits must be completed at UNI after the transfer.

A “C” grade or better is necessary for each technical credit to transfer; a “D-“ or better must be earned in all transfer courses.

Visit with a Hawkeye advisor in student services to learn what general education courses you can take at Hawkeye as part of your AAS degree that will transfer to UNI's general education requirements.

The following programs have specific articulated program-to-program transfer agreements with the College of Humanities, Arts, and Sciences Technology department at UNI.
