General Education Core Curriculum (GECC) Credential - C104

Available at all 4 IECC colleges, the General Education Core Curriculum Credential is designed for those students who are unsure about a career, major, or program, but plan on transferring to a four-year institution in Illinois. Completion of this credential ensures the student can seamlessly transfer to an in-state four-year institution, having satisfied their general education requirements. This credential, consisting of 37-41 semester credit hours, is not a degree or certificate, nor is it an industry-recognized credential.

The General Education Core Curriculum Credential is comprised of only Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI) approved general education courses--a majority of which are offered online. For a listing of IECC approved courses, click here.
