Admission Requirements for Iowa's Public Universities
Iowa State University, the University of Iowa, and the University of Northern Iowa require that applicants rank in the upper one-half of their class at the time the student is applying. This generally refers to a student’s rank at the end of the junior year, since students apply to these universities early in their senior year. Obviously, it is important that students begin and maintain a good academic record starting in the 9th grade. In addition to the class rank requirement, each school sets forth requirements or recommendations regarding high school courses. Please see your school counselor to make sure your course selections will count toward admission requirements.
