Top 10 Things You Should Know About iTransfer Gen. Ed

  1. The Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI) agreement and the iTransfer website are designed to make transferring to any participating school as smooth as possible. When making transfer plans, always seek the advice of an academic advisor or admissions counselor at your current school and at the school you plan to attend.
  2. Articulation is the process of transferring courses from 1 school to another and the way the classes will be used at the receiving school.
  3. The Illinois Transferable General Education Core Curriculum (iTransfer Gen. Ed.) is for transfer students only, not native students.
  4. You should complete the Illinois Transferable General Education Core Curriculum (iTransfer Gen. Ed.) as a package before transferring to be guaranteed full general education credit. When the full package is not completed before transfer, each college or university decides how to apply each individual course.
  5. The Illinois Transferable General Education Core Curriculum (iTransfer Gen. Ed.) requires a total of 12 to 13 courses (37 to 41 semester credits) or a total of 12 to 14 courses (56 to 61 quarter credits).
  6. Students must earn an appropriate letter grade to fulfill requirements within the Illinois Transferable General Education Core Curriculum (iTransfer Gen. Ed.). Appropriate Advanced Placement (AP) exam scores can substitute for specific iTransfer Gen. Ed. courses.
  7. No more than 2 courses from any 1 discipline can be used to fulfill Illinois Transferable General Education Core Curriculum (iTransfer Gen. Ed.) requirements.
  8. Application of credit earned prior to the summer of 1998 is an individual school's decision.
  9. There are 2 types of undergraduate degrees: the associate degree and the bachelor's degree.
  10. The Illinois Transferable General Education Core Curriculum (iTransfer Gen. Ed.) became effective statewide in the summer of 1998.

Top 10 Things You Should Know About iTransfer Majors

  1. Even though the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI) agreements and this website are meant to make transfer smoother, you still need to see an academic advisor or admissions counselor.
  2. To transfer as a junior, you need a minimum of 60 semester credits, and usually not more than 64 semester credits. Plan to earn an associate degree before transferring: Associate in Arts, Associate in Science, Associate in Engineering Science, or Associate in Fine Arts.
  3. If you already know where you will transfer, see that school's catalog and a counselor for specific advice. These iTransfer Majors' recommendations are for students who are undecided about a transfer school.
  4. Every participating school does not offer all majors or all specialties in a major.
  5. No 2 majors are alike; courses in 1 major are unlikely to meet requirements for a different major. Changing your major will likely increase the time needed to complete your degree.
  6. Be sure to check to see if any specific Illinois Transferable General Education Core Curriculum (iTransfer Gen. Ed.) courses are recommended by your major. A few majors, like music and engineering, suggest you not finish the iTransfer Gen. Ed. before transferring.
  7. Most majors require at least a C for a course to count towards major requirements, and most schools won't accept pass/fail.
  8. Since admission is often competitive, completing the iTransfer Majors' recommended courses will not by itself guarantee admission.
  9. Some majors require assessment for admission: A basic skills test (reading, grammar, writing and math) is required for certification in all teacher education majors. Most music schools require an audition and most art schools require a portfolio.
  10. When selecting courses for your major, always seek advice from an academic advisor at your current school and a counselor at the transfer school.
