This transfer program is one of the most popular transfer programs (AA, AS, and ASA) taken by students at Illinois Eastern Community Colleges. If you do not see the particular area in which you are interested, please contact one of our academic advisors to assist you. Many other majors can be easily programmed into a transfer associate degree to meet your needs. We would be happy to assist you in achieving your educational goals. These are examples of major requirements including the General Education Core Curriculum (GECC). Four-year college requirements vary from college to college. Consult an academic advisor for specific college requirements before registering for classes listed below.
