Transfer Degrees

​​​​​​DMACC offers a number of transferrable degrees to help you transition into your four-year program. Explore many of our transfer degree options below.​

Choose an Associates of Arts (AA) or Associates of Science (AS) Degree

​Our Liberal Arts Associates of Arts (AA) and Associates of Science (AS) degrees are our most transferrable degrees, especially to Iowa's Regents Institutions: Iowa State University, The University of Iowa and University of Northern Iowa.

As part of our Liberal Arts degrees, DMACC offers Transfer Pathways to help guide you toward courses in academic areas you wish to pursue.

  • If you are interested in one of the areas represented by a Transfer Pathway, select that Pathway in your admissions application by first choosing the appropriate Liberal Arts degree (AA or AS) and then selecting your specific Pathway.
  • If none of the Pathways suit your interests, DMACC offers a general Liberal Arts AA or AS Degree through the Still Deciding option.​

Testimonials

"DMACC teaches you how to study, how to learn, how to socialize, and be successful. So many students go to a huge university without any idea what they want to be in the future. DMACC allows you to explore career choices at an affordable rate, and has professors who have personal experience in almost every field."

- Grace, ISU Engineering Student

"The low student-to-teacher ratio was a big factor for me coming to DMACC. There's a much more personal level of education here. The staff also really helped me with financial aid. The schedule is flexible with night classes, too, so there were a lot of opportunities for me to get into the right classes."

- Kade, Pre-Business
