Partnering with ISU

Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) is proud to partner with Iowa State University through the Admissions Partnership Program (APP). This program allows students to begin their academic career at one of DMACC's six campuses prior to transferring to Iowa State. Students can also take a variety of college credit courses in the afternoons and evenings at the Ames Hunziker Center. If you prefer taking courses during the day, check out the DMACC Boone campus only 15 minutes West of Ames.

APP participants enjoy a number of attractive benefits that help make their transfer to Iowa State a smooth and successful transition. Benefits include:

  • Guaranteed admission to Iowa State, provided all requirements are met
  • Personalized mentoring and academic counseling
  • Access to Iowa State libraries, career exploration opportunities, extracurricular activities, and recreational facilities
  • Iowa State student discount prices for cultural and athletic events
  • Access to an ISU Card and e-mail address
