Illinois Articulation Initiative

Bradley University has endorsed the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI). The purpose of the IAI is to facilitate the transfer of courses among two- and four-year colleges and universities throughout the state of Illinois. The IAI guarantees students that completion of the General Education Core Curriculum at any participating school will satisfy general education requirements at any other participating school. This initiative is in effect for students who began college during or after summer 1998.

  1. Students completing their Associates of Arts or Associates of Sciences degree at a participating IAI school and completing the IAI faculty panel-approved Illinois General Education Core Curriculum will have automatically satisfied their general education requirements at Bradley. This does not include general education courses that are degree requirements.
  2. Students completing the IAI Core Curriculum only, without an Associates Degree, will have satisfied their general education requirements at Bradley.
  3. Students transferring to Bradley without having completed their IAI Core Curriculum will have to fulfill the Bradley general education requirements.
  4. Readmit students must complete Bradley’s general education requirements.
  5. Illinois Transferable General Education Core Curriculum includes the following:
    • 3 courses (9 credits) in Communication
    • 1-2 courses (3-6 credits) in Math
    • 2 courses (7-8 credits) in Physical and Life Sciences
    • 3 courses (9 credits) in Humanities and Fine Arts
    • 3 courses (9 credits) in Social and Behavioral Sciences

Official verification of IAI attainment must be sent from the former college, by request of the student, directly to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
