Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI)

Transfer students from Heartland perform as well as or better academically at four-year institutions than the students who begin their careers there, according to transfer institutions.

The Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI) is a statewide transfer agreement which is transferable among more then 100 participating colleges and universities in Illinois. IAI works best for students who know they are going to transfer but undecided on the college or university that will grant their baccalaureate degree.

Is your intended transfer institution a part of IAI?

View the list of participating IAI colleges and universities.

All colleges and universities participating in the IAI agree to accept a "package" of IAI general education courses in lieu of their own comparable lower-division general education requirements. Keep in mind, the IAI General Education transfers as a package. Course-to-course transfer is not guaranteed.
