Approved Transfer Courses
Students may request to apply a transfer course towards the U.S. Diversity or International Perspectives Requirement. The student, offering department, academic advisor, and college student office must complete the form to Request to Apply Transfer Course Towards the U.S. Diversity or International Perspectives Requirement for approval to use a course transferred to Iowa State University to meet either the U.S. Diversity or International Perspectives requirement.
The Iowa State University department that offers a similar course determines whether a course meets the outcomes of U.S. Diversity or International Perspectives. After appropriate approvals, the Office of the Registrar will add the course to the U.S. Diversity/International Perspectives Approved Transfer Course List.
To request to apply a combination of transfer courses and/or life experiences to either the U.S. Diversity or International Perspectives requirement, use the “U.S. Diversity/International Perspectives Course Substitution or Waiver Request” form. (See the Registrar Forms page.)
