College and University Partnerships

At Oakton, we want to ensure you're prepared to succeed during and after your time with us. For students who wish to transfer to a four-year college or university, we participate in the Illinois Articulation Initiative. Our participation in the IAI means that your Oakton credits meet the educational standards of all participating Illinois four-year colleges and universities, enabling you to transfer as easily and early as possible.

Oakton has also established lasting and meaningful partnerships with 32 colleges and universities to further ease your transition from Oakton.

Some four-year colleges and universities may require additional coursework before transfer—particularly for certain majors. These requirements are not always aligned with Oakton's associate degree requirements. Consult the following school-specific transfer guides and resources, or consult an academic advisor for additional information.
