Articulation Agreement

Associate OF Arts and Associate OF Science Articulation

The IHCC Arts and Sciences Division maintains transfer agreements with many public and private institutions in Iowa and the surrounding states. Articulation agreements are those made between Indian Hills and other colleges, which allow for the smooth transfer of IHCC students into four-year programs awarding the baccalaureate degree. Articulation agreements are based upon the assumption that transferring students have completed their Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree. Students without A.A. or A.S. degrees may still transfer; however, credits at the transferring institution will be accepted on a course-by-course basis only.

An agreement with the state universities in Iowa allows students to transfer completed Associate of Arts degrees. The agreement requires that transferring students maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.0 in all courses. Students must also meet the following requirements:

  1. Communications - 8 semester hours
  2. Humanities - 8 semester hours
  3. Math and Science - 8 semester hours
  4. Social Sciences - 8 semester hours
  5. Distributed Electives - 8 semester hours will be taken from the above four divisions

Although all colleges will accept transfer credit from IHCC, the following colleges have committed to admitting the IHCC student with an A.A. degree at a junior-level standing:

The following colleges have indicated they are willing to accept specific Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees, for students who wish to transfer:

*It is advised that students pursuing and A.A.S. degree work closely with the transfer admissions department of the college to which they plan to transfer.

The above information is meant to serve as a guide for Indian Hills students in preparation for transfer from IHCC to another institution; however, these agreements are not intended to serve as a replacement for contact with a representative of that institution.

Admission requirements, degree requirements, and course equivalencies are subject to change; therefore, it is important for transfer students to remain in close contact with the institution to which they plan to transfer for the most current and accurate information.

*Indian Hills Community College Academic Advisors understand the importance of accurate transfer information and try to provide the most current information available; however, they are not representatives of any other institution and therefore cannot provide all information relevant to transfer to a specific institution. Students are strongly encouraged to begin working with the institution to which they plan to transfer as soon as possible.
