IINSPIRE LSAMP Program Information
My academic standing is a factor for admission to UI LSAMP; therefore, I give UI LSAMP staff permission to obtain my transcripts. If I completed coursework at another college or university, I am responsible for submitting transcripts from that school to the University of Iowa Office of Admissions, and UI LSAMP may obtain a copy of those transcripts from Admissions.
