The Transfer Process

Articulation is the process where one college matches its courses or requirements to course work at another college or university.

Here are a few of the ways to approach the transfer process:

  1. Earn a degree in any of the programs Kishwaukee College offers
  2. Complete the Illinois Articulation Initiative General Education Core before transferring, requiring a minimum of 37 semester hours.
  3. Use MyCreditsTransfer and learn how courses transfer between Kishwaukee College and other participating institutions in Illinois.
  4. When you have selected the school you would like to transfer to, it is important that you review their specific admission and course requirements; Kishwaukee College has many articulations agreements with various colleges.
