Transfer Associate Degrees - AA, AS, AES, AFA
Institutions in Illinois grant two primary transferable Associates degrees because the Illinois Articulation Initiative general education package is part of both (The Associate in Arts/AA and the Associate in Science/AS degree). The AA, has a full general education package (GECC) fully incorporated. When you complete an AA degree and transfer, your general education requirements should be waived at the next 4-year IAI participating institution you choose to attend. The AS degree is specifically designed for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, or STEM, areas of study. This degree has a modified general education package which allows students in these demanding fields the opportunity to remain on track with their cohorts at the 4-year institutions and complete their general education courses after they transfer to their institution of choice. Under the AS model, students will take one additional math and science course each. The GECC package remains intact; however, a student will complete the package upon transfer to a university.                               
Students seeking the Associates in Engineering Science (AES) and Associate in Fine Arts (AFA) options should consult with with their College Advisor).                       

Always select your degre​e program and courses in consultation with your college advisor!
