Request a transcript evaluation

If you are a former/current UNI student and would like an evaluation of your credits for the BLS degree, please contact Monica Johnson, BLS Advisor, at 319-273-2504, 800-772-1746 or If you have earned any credits from another institution that need to be transferred to UNI, please share this information with Monica.

If you are NOT a former UNI student, you will first need to apply for admission to the University of Northern Iowa. An official transcript from your school(s) must be sent to the Office of Admissions (002 Gilchrist Hall, Cedar Falls, IA 50614-0018). Upon receipt of your transcript(s), our Admissions Office will determine the transferability of your coursework. Transferability can only be determined if you have applied for admission to UNI. Once admitted, please contact Monica Johnson, BLS Advisor, at 319-273-2504, 800-772-1746 or to proceed with your evaluation for the BLS degree.
