By completing an AA or AS degree prior to transferring, students will be considered to have attained junior standing and to have met all lower division general education requirements upon transfer to an Illinois public college or university.
Lake Land College is a participant in the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI), a statewide agreement that allows transfer of the Illinois General Education Core Curriculum (GECC) between participating institutions. Completion of the GECC at any participating college in Illinois assures transferring students that lower-division general education requirements for an associate or bachelor’s degree have been satisfied. The IAI GECC course number for each Lake Land College course is included in ( ) in the course listings below. The AA degree includes the complete IAI GECC. Students who complete the AS degree may complete the additional 6 hours of IAI GECC (one course in Humanities and Fine Arts and one course in Social and Behavioral Sciences) as part of their Electives or following transfer to the four-year university.
Students may check the IAI website at itransfer.org for updates to the approved course list.
Requirements differ from one institution to another. The student should refer to the catalog of the four-year university to which he or she plans to transfer and consult with a member of the college counseling staff prior to registering for the courses he or she selects.
