UI-Springfield finalizes course transfer agreements

The University of Illinois-Springfield has finalized transfer agreements with four community colleges in Illinois, including Parkland.

The new agreements are also with Illinois Valley Community College (Oglesby), Lake Land College (Mattoon), and Southwestern Illinois College (Belleville).

The partnership will make it easier for students enrolled in accountancy, business administration, economics, management, and management information systems programs to transfer to UIS.

"These agreements serve as an effective 'road map' for the students who want to earn their undergraduate degree in a timely manner," Raymond Barnett, UIS transfer coordinator, said in a press release.

The agreements were featured in an August 12, 2011, article in the Champaign News-Gazette.
