How Institutions can Participate
All Illinois associate and baccalaureate degree-granting institutions are eligible
to participate in the Illinois Articulation Initiative. To record a desire to
participate, degree-granting institutions are invited to submit a Statement
of Intent. Institutions may participate in the Illinois transferable General
Education Core Curriculum agreement and/or in one or more of the several Baccalaureate
Majors' agreements, with the level of participation in Baccalaureate Majors'
agreements depending upon whether or not the institution offers a program in
the specific major.
Institutions were invited to submit statements of intent to participate in
the Illinois transferable General Education Core Curriculum after its endorsement
by the Board of Higher Education and the Illinois Community College Board in
fall 1994, and are invited to submit statements of intent to participate in
each Baccalaureate Major after the respective panel has reviewed the majority
of courses submitted as matches to its recommendation.
Although invitations are extended at specific times and the majority of institutions
respond within a six-week time frame, institutions are welcome to become participants
at any time. If you are interested in what institutions agree to when participating
in IAI, you can find information by reviewing the Illinois
Board of Higher Education Policies on Undergraduate Education, Adopted September
1990, Transfer and Articulation, Amended September 1994 and May 1997 and

January 2007 Thirty Hour Rule Memorandum.
