  • They are certified as true copies by an official of the educational institution, an embassy official, or an appropriate government official.

Please Note: An earned Associate of Arts or Associate of Science Degree from an Illinois community college fulfills the General Education requirements, per the Illinois Articulation Initiative. If you have not earned such a degree, you must complete 60 transferable hours including the Core and General Education requirements above. * Students can select from a number of different courses to satisfy the broad General Education categories listed above. Following is a brief description of each category:
  • Analyzing the Natural World: Courses in this category should introduce students to scientific and mathematical concepts and methods
  • Exploring World Cultures: Courses in this category should address significant aspects of any culture that is not part of the mainstream American culture
  • Understanding the Creative Arts: Courses in this category should focus, in close detail, on a number of significant works in literature, art, or other media
  • Understanding the Individual and Society: Courses in this category should introduce students either to the complexities of the individual or the relationship of the individual to social structures
  • Understanding the Past: Courses in this category should have as their focus significant past events
  • Understanding U.S. Society: Courses in this category should address some significant aspect of U.S. Society as their central focus
There are numerous courses that satisfy each of these categories. You can see a list of these courses and other information about UIC General Education requirements at www.uic.edu/ucat/toc.html. **Other Mathematics, Calculus, Statistics or quantitative analysis courses are highly recommended prerequisites that can be taken in order to satisfy the 24 hours of Electives requirements. However, many courses that satisfy the above general education requirements as well as those required for an associate's degree in business can also satisfy the Electives requirements.
If you have any questions on prerequisites for the BBA Degree Completion program, please contact an advisor at bba@uic.edu or call us at 844-819-5615.
