We encourage students to work closely with their Hawkeye Advisor in Student Services and their Iowa State College of Agriculture and Life Sciences advisor to plan the courses they need to take at Hawkeye to transfer to the major of their choice.

Students must take the Biology I and II sequence at the same institution. If students take BIO112 Biology I at Hawkeye, they must also take BIO113 Biology II at Hawkeye to transfer the courses.

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

All credits transfer on a credit-for-credit basis.
