Illinois Articulation Initiative

Moraine Valley Community College is a participant in the Illinois Articulation Initiative. Sponsored by the Illinois Board of Higher Education and the Illinois Community College Board, this initiative makes it easier for students to transfer credit between participating Illinois colleges and universities.

The initiative includes an agreed-upon Illinois General Education Core Curriculum and recommended freshmen/sophomore-level courses for specific majors in the Illinois Baccalaureate Majors Curricula. Completion of the general education core curriculum assures students transferring to any participating Illinois institution that lower-division general education requirements for an associate's (A.A./A.S.) or bachelor's degree have been satisfied. Students who complete the general education core and the prescribed major curricula will be better prepared to transfer as juniors in their baccalaureate major at participating schools.

The above agreement went into effect for students entering a participating associate's or baccalaureate degree-granting institution as a first-time freshman in summer 1998.

The iTransfer Web site facilitates students' transfer among more than 100 participating colleges and universities in the state of Illinois. The iTransfer Web site and database can be found at
