Transfer Plan with Iowa State University

​​​​Iowa State University partners with DMACC to develop transfer plans for students interested in careers in fitness and health promotion and wish to start their education at a community college. You can plan ahead and be sure of graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in four years.

We will work with you from the beginning of your program until you graduate from Iowa State. The academic staff at both institutions will help you in planning the appropriate course sequence and to explore your career interests in fitness and health promotion through volunteer and/or field experiences, student clubs and other networking opportunities.

Students can take DMACC classes at both Ankeny and Boone Campuses.  Classes start Fall, Spring and Summer Terms.
