Applicants must have completed a bachelor’s degree from a regionally-accredited institution in business, agriculture or a biology-related discipline; and graduated with a grade point average (GPA) of approximately 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale. If your undergraduate GPA was below a 3.0, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We review applications on an individual basis and will consider your full application when making admission decisions.
Official transcript records bear the original stamp or seal of the school registrar where you obtained your Bachelor’s degree. If you were previously enrolled at ISU you do not need to request your transcripts; the ISU Graduate Admissions office will obtain them directly.
Documents may be uploaded at the same time that you submit your online application, or at a later date if necessary. For the application process, we accept a scanned copy of official academic records or unofficial transcripts from any institution where you earned (or will earn) a bachelor’s, and any institution attended after that (e.g., graduate work, etc.).
If you are given an official offer of admission to the STB master’s program from Iowa State University, then you will need to make sure an official stamped or sealed copy of your transcript is sent directly to the ISU Graduate Admissions office. If you do not have an official copy of your transcripts you can request that your institution mail them directly to the ISU Graduate Admissions office.
