High School Course Recommendations

High School Course Recommendations

Core Course Admission Requirements

High school students who plan to attend four-year colleges and 

universities are encouraged to make rigorous course selections. 

Iowa's Regent Universities, as well as other four-year institutions,

suggest that high school students take a minimum of three to four 

years of all core subjects.  The high school course recommendations 

found in the "Building Your Future" article and grid are a good guideline

for admission to any four-year institution.  The Regent Universities of Iowa

(The University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and the University of 

Northern Iowa) have also started using the Regent Admission Index (RAI). 

The RAI is a mathematical formula used to determine student admission 

to these three universities.  The formula is based upon the number of 

core courses a student takes in high school, as well as the student's 

grade point average, class rank and ACT composite score.
