Simpson College

Simpson Transfer

In continuing to build opportunities for students to achieve affordable pathways to a baccalaureate degree and beyond, Simpson College and Indian Hills Community College (IHCC) have created a transfer pathway to provide a preferred admission track if the admissions requirements are met for international students who graduate from Indian Hills with an Associate of Arts (AA) or an Associate of Science (AS) degree.

Participants Benefit in the following ways:

  • Simpson College’s preferred admission track is designed for those IHCC international students who have completed an AA or AS degree as evidenced by an official IHCC transcript and have achieved a minimum 2.75 GPA at graduation from IHCC and received a B- or higher in Composition I and II at IHCC.

  • Acceptance at Simpson College is competitive; thus preferred admission to Simpson College does not imply guaranteed admission. IHCC international students will be considered on the same basis as Simpson College native students for admission.

  • Simpson College will accept up to 64 IHCC credits IHCC credits for transfer to the college.

  • Admission under this agreement is contingent upon receipt of a final official transcript documenting degree completion from IHCC, and all other prior transcripts.

  • International Admission Transfer Scholarship: International IHCC students who matriculate through the Simpson College-IHCC Admission Agreement will be eligible to be awarded the following scholarships:

    • An International Student Scholarship
      • $18,000-$20,000 renewable scholarship based on IHCC GPA.

    • An Indian Hills Community College International Transfer Scholarship
      • Up to $5,000 based on financial need.
