At ISU we are dedicated to your success as a graduate student. Iowa State University has a two-step application process. The first step is free and will generally be reviewed within two weeks. That outcome will determine if you are invited to apply for the second step. Students that are encouraged to submit a full application as part of the second step can update their profile.
