Upper Iowa University


Founded in 1857, Upper Iowa University is a private, nonprofit university providing undergraduate and graduate degree programs to about 5,200 students–nationally and internationally–at its Fayette campus, 21 U.S. locations, as well as a location in Hong Kong. Upper Iowa University is a recognized innovator in offering accredited, quality programs through flexible, multiple delivery systems, including online and self-paced degree programs. With a focus on developing leaders and lifelong learners, UIU provides dual enrollment programs for high school students as well as continuing education and professional development opportunities for learners of any age.

Upper Iowa University will also consider acceptance of course work in transfer from:

  • International institutions that are approved/registered by their country’s Ministry of Education or other national educational governing body as reviewed and approved by Upper Iowa University.
  • International institutions where transcripts for individual students are reviewed and evaluated by an approved foreign credential evaluators service and approved by Upper Iowa University.

Course work completed at institutions that fail to meet any of the aforementioned criteria will not be accepted in transfer to Upper Iowa University.

Course work completed with formal Upper Iowa University Articulation Partnership Advantage institutions will be transferred following articulation guidelines. Course work from other accredited institutions will be transferred to meet particular degree requirements based on full-time faculty recommendations.

Grades earned in courses accepted for transfer will appear on your Upper Iowa University transcript, and the credits earned will count toward your total number required for graduation. However, grade points earned at another institution are not transferred and are not figured into your cumulative grade point average (GPA) maintained at Upper Iowa University, but are included in calculating the major/endorsement GPA.
