Iowa Public Universities Application Portal to Launch July 1, 2015

June 25, 2015

Beginning Wednesday, July 1, all new U.S. high school graduates who apply for admission to the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and/or the University of Northern Iowa will be able to do so from a single web site location. Click here to visit the new application portal website.

The web site, known as the Common Application Portal, will provide new U.S. high school graduates with an efficient process for applying to more than one of Iowa’s public universities. The Portal will guide students through application questions common to all three universities plus specific questions applicable to each school.

"The Portal will provide a one-stop shop for new U.S. high school graduates who are interested in applying to more than one Regent university," said Board of Regents Chief Academic Officer Dr. Diana Gonzalez. "The Portal will ease the process for students because they won’t need to answer the common questions more than once."

The Portal will be available for new U.S. high school graduates who wish to enroll for the Fall 2016 semester or later. The fee will remain at $40 for each university application.

Development of the Common Application Portal resulted from a recommendation of the Board’s TIER (Transparent, Inclusive, Efficiency Review) study which is identifying efficiencies at the Regent universities. A similar Portal is available at other university application systems across the country.

The Portal was developed by a team that included Board Office and university representatives.
