Articulation Tables

Organized by institution, our articulation tables list community college courses and their NIU equivalents. The NIU equivalent can be a specific course, a general elective credit or a specific elective credit (Society and Culture Elective, for example).

The tables also contain Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI) codes. These codes indicate courses that are part of a set of general education courses that transfers between institutions.
