General Education Core Credential

The General Education Core Curriculum (IAI-GECC) credential may be awarded to a student upon completion of a minimum 37 credit hours across five academic disciplines which satisfy the General Education Core Curriculum of the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI).  Successful completion of this credential will help students to facilitate transfer to any other participating associate or bachelor degree program.  Participating institutions have agreed to accept this credential as a "package" in lieu of their own comparable lower-division general education requirements.
