Illinois Articulation Initiative

Moraine Valley Community College is a participant in the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI). Sponsored by the Illinois Board of Higher Education and the Illinois Community College Board, this initiative makes it easier for students to transfer credit between more than 100 participating Illinois colleges and universities.

The initiative includes an agreed-upon Illinois General Education Core Curriculum and recommended freshman- and sophomore level courses for specific majors in the Illinois Baccalaureate Majors’ Curricula. Completion of the general education core curriculum at any participating institution in Illinois assures transferring students that lower-division, campuswide general education requirements for an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science or bachelor’s degree have been satisfied upon transfer to another participating institution. The receiving institution may require admitted transfer students to complete an institution wide and/or mission-related graduation requirement beyond the scope of the general education core. The Associate in Fine Arts degree does not satisfy the entire IAI general education core; therefore, students who complete this degree must meet the general education requirements for the bachelor’s degree of the university to which they plan to transfer. However, students wishing to meet the IAI general education core should consult with an academic advisor. Students who complete the general education core and the prescribed major curricula will be better prepared to transfer as juniors in the baccalaureate major at participating schools. The most current list of participating schools can be found online at iTransfer.org.

Specific IAI courses offered at Moraine Valley are maintained through the IAI course database. Use this link and select Moraine Valley to see a list of available courses: IAI Course Search. IAI numbers are also presented as part of the course descriptions in this catalog.
