Officials of LLCC and Western Illinois University signed a new academic transfer partnership, or articulation agreement, yesterday. The agreement is designed to facilitate the ease of transfer of LLCC students wishing to achieve a bachelor of arts in general studies at WIU.

“We are happy to add this to our list of transfer agreements that help LLCC graduates continue on to earn a bachelor’s degree,” said Dr. Vern Lindquist, vice president of academic services at LLCC. “Students who earn an associate degree at LLCC in any field of study can transfer to the general studies program at WIU. Courses in the general studies program may be taken entirely online, so our students who live and work in our district can still attend this program at WIU. The general studies program is a self-designed, very flexible degree, and students may choose up to three minors from over 25 choices.”
