Consult Advisor

Important suggestions to make getting academic advice simple.

When making transfer plans, always seek the advice of an academic advisor or admissions counselor at your current school and at the school you plan to attend.

If you are a freshman who has not decided upon a major, you should begin your studies by enrolling in courses within the Illinois Articulation Initiative General Education Core Curriculum (IAI GECC). You should also seek assistance with career planning, since a delay in selecting a major may extend the time necessary to complete a degree. Always seek the advice of an academic advisor or admissions counselor when making transfer plans. Research shows that students who earn an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree prior to transfer to a bachelor's degree program complete their bachelor's degrees at about the same rate as do students who begin as freshmen and graduate from the same college or university.
