An enhanced 2+2, on the other hand, allows a student to complete up to 90 semester credits of coursework, mostly general education courses, and then transfer to complete the remaining credits toward a bachelor's degree at a four-year college/university.
Transfer guides suggest specific College of DuPage course subjects that meet pre-requisites for specific majors. These guides also provide: contact information, basic information about the major, admission and degree requirements, general education requirements and transfer policies. Transfer guides generally are not specific to a particular associate’s degree.
Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI)
The Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI) is a statewide transfer agreement, which is transferable among more than 100 participating college or universities in Illinois. IAI allows students to concentrate on completing their general education core courses, and works best for students who know they are going to transfer but undecided on the college or university that will grant their baccalaureate degree.
