Transfer Checklist

The Transfer Center at Illinois Central College offers information about transferring to baccalaureate institutions

For successful transfer, the following checklist is available for all students who plan to transfer:

Step 1Choose a Program of Study

You can investigate possible career paths in the ICC Career Center or through labor market information and career interest surveys.

Step 2Plan your ICC Courses

Your Academic Advisor or the Transfer Center, can assist in course selection. Transfer program course guides are available in various department offices or on the college website. Because transfer requirements change frequently, you should verify all transfer information directly with the college/university.

Step 3Visit the ICC Transfer Center

Transfer Center has the following available resources: internet access, college-career search programs, college catalogs, and more.

To schedule an appointment email or call (309) 694-5330

Step 4Research and Choose a University

Be sure to compare academic programs, entrance requirements, costs, deadlines for applications and transcript submission, and housing requirements for each of the possible colleges/universities.

Step 5Visit Campuses

Try to visit each of the colleges as time and resources permit, try to envision yourself there. Virtual tours may be available on the Internet and many college representatives also come to the ICC campus for Transfer Day/College Night and throughout the year.

Step 6Applying for Admission

Submit your applications (and fees, if needed) to your transfer institutions of choice.

Step 7Send Transcripts

Send your academic transcripts (from all colleges you have attended) and obtain letters of recommendation, if necessary.

Step 8Secure Financial Aid

Complete the financial aid process by completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) application.

Step 9Stay in Touch with your Transfer School

Once you have been accepted, complete the housing process and register for classes as soon as possible.

Step 10Attend your Transfer School’s Orientation

Attend any “Transfer Days” or student orientations to get involved at your new school.
