Program Information/Mission:
Requirements for admissions to four-year colleges and universities vary a great deal. However, Illinois Central College has articulated requirements with several area universities to ensure ease in transfer of credits upon completion of the Associate in  Science Degree. Hence, students who comply with the terms of such articulation agreements may expect to complete baccalaureate requirements within the same period of time as if they had spent their entire academic career on the campus of the institution to which they transfer.
