Transfer Information

Approved Programs

No university or college offers all possible teacher education programs. To determine what programs are offered at each institution in Illinois, see Approved Programs in Illinois.

Education Courses

In order to transfer Education courses to four-year institutions, they must be "articulated," which simply means that the Oakton course is accepted as equivalent to a course offered at the transfer institution.

Please click on the links below to open documents that list all the primary transfer institutions in the area and their articulation status with the various Education courses.

General Education Courses

The general education courses at Oakton are part of the Illinois Articulation Initiative. If the course you are taking has an "IAI code" it is articulated with other institions within the partnership. To check which schools are part of this agreement, visit Oakton's IAI website or the IAI website, itself.

Please note that different School of Education programs require slightly different general education courses -- majors will also differ (for example, Secondary Education may differ from Special Education) even within a single transfer institution.

It is best to determine your transfer institution as soon as possible so that you can obtain its general education requirements for your major from an advisor at the transfer institution. Oakton advisors would be happy to help you in this process. They can be contacted at:
