Business

Business programs at community colleges and bachelor’s degree schools include courses and majors in general business, accounting, finance, marketing and management. The following recommendations apply to programs in all of these fields. Community and junior college students are strongly encouraged to complete an Associate in Arts (A.A.) or Associate in Science (A.S.) degree prior to transfer. Further, students should consult closely with an adviser early in their programs if they intend to transfer as juniors into a bachelor’s degree program.

The following list of courses is designed for students choosing to begin their college career at one Illinois school and later transfer to another, and if they want to make sure that courses they take will count toward a degree at the new school.

Illinois Articulation Initiative Recommendations


Joliet Junior College participates in the IAI majors panels for the Associate in Arts and Associate in Science degrees to help students transfer major courses to an Illinois college or university that participates in IAI. Transferability of major courses is still dependent upon the transfer institution accepting the courses as major courses. An updated list of courses is available at www.itransfer.org/iai/majors and www.itransfer.org/iai/articulationTables. Students should also check the transferability of courses through u.select (formerly known as CAS), which can be found at www.itransfer.org/uselect. Always consult the four-year college or university to which you plan to transfer and work with a counselor or an adviser at JJC. Note that students do not graduate with a transfer major from a community college but rather the community college prepares students to have the flexibility to transfer and to choose a major from a number of different areas. Students must be responsible to seek  information to make good curriculum choices. Students should recognize that, even though they may be admitted to a four-year transfer institution, they may need to meet that institution’s separate requirements to be admitted into a particular major.
