In the past 10 years, 2,500 community college students have transferred to St. Ambrose, students like you who seek our top-notch educational programs in nursing, teacher education, business, exercise science, accounting, engineering and more.
And you get the personally enriching experiences that are uniquely interwoven into an Ambrosian education.
We have articulation agreements with Eastern Iowa Community College, Palmer College of Chiropractic, Moraine Valley Community College, Carl Sandburg College, and Black Hawk College. These formal agreements match coursework between the schools. Scroll down see each one.
Are you attending a different community college? No problem. In most cases, an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree from an accredited community college satisfies most of our general education requirements. Here are some transfer planning guides to help you. Or, check out this information about transfer course equivalency.
Agreements are .pdf documents unless otherwise noted.

Sometimes it's in a student's best interest to transfer to SAU and complete the requirements for AA or AS degree while taking classes here. Students may "reverse transfer" their credit hours and earn their degree from the community college after beginning classes here.
