Chemistry Transfer Major

Chemistry Transfer Major

Chemistry is a big part of everyday life and is a growing field with many exciting job opportunities! Iowa Lakes will set you on the right track for a career in Chemistry, including chemical engineer, teacher, pharmacologist, forensic chemist, and more.

Earn your Associate in Science degree in Chemistry before transferring on to a regent university (University of Iowa, Iowa State or University of Northern Iowa) to complete your Bachelor of Science degree. Completion of the AS degree at Iowa Lakes will satisfy the required general education prerequisites at the regent of your choosing. Complete courses in General and Organic Chemistry with labs, as well as Calculus, before even graduating from Iowa Lakes.

By earning this degree, you'll have met the general course requirements for a specific major of a four-year institution and a transfer major recorded on your transcripts from Iowa Lakes. Requirements may vary among institutions so students should work with an advisor to become familiar with specific requirements of the institution which they plan to transfer.

To earn a Transfer Major Degree, a student must complete all required coursework of that specific major and maintain a 2.0 GPA.

A Chemistry Transfer Major can be the formula for success. You have a goal ... we have the plan. APPLY TODAY!

Students who plan to complete their general AA or AS and have a TRANSFER OPTION should contact the college or university to which they plan to transfer to assure that that core  courses they take will transfer into their planned major.
