If an educator is BizInnovator certified and is licensed to teach business or marketing courses, he/she is able to offer college credit. At the end of the high school entrepreneurship course, high school students may sit for an online University of Iowa proficiency exam. The BizInnovator-certified educator acts as the proctor for this exam.  

To schedule an exam, simply fill out and submit an exam request form. Jacobson Institute staff will schedule the online exam, and you will receive an email from jacobson-institute@uiowa.edu with instructions on how students access the exam at the appointed time.

SCHEDULE EXAM

Students who score 70% or higher on the exam and hold junior/senior status are eligible to purchase college credits at a reduced rate. After students have taken the University of Iowa exam, educators will receive an email with test results for their students. Students and their families also will be notified of their eligibility by email and letter. 

Qualified students will receive an email with details about payment and registration. Total cost for the three Tippie College of Business credits is $150.

To transfer college credits, students need a copy of their University of Iowa transcript to give to the college they will attend. If you'd like to determine before purchase whether credits will transfer, contact the registrar’s office at that specific college to inquire. 

University of Iowa transcripts: BizInnovator student information is processed by University of Iowa admissions three times per school year (Dec. 1, May 1, and Aug. 1), dependent upon the form/payment submission date. University of Iowa transcripts will be ready to order in January, June, and September, respectively. Ordering a transcript before the student is processed will result in a blank document and will require you to reorder. To ensure this does not happen, follow the guidelines below: 
 

  • Form and payment submitted May 1 – Nov. 30: Student information will be processed by admissions Dec. 1, and transcript will be ready to order in January.
  • Form and payment submitted payment Dec. 31 – April 30: Student information will be processed by admissions May 1, and transcript will be ready to order in June.
  • Form and payment submitted May – July: Student information will be processed by admissions Aug. 1, and transcript will be ready to order in September.

When transcripts are ready, a follow-up email will come from jacobson-institute@uiowa.edu with instructions on how to order a copy from the University of Iowa Registrar's Office. The Jacobson Institute does not provide transcripts.
