General Education Core Curriculum
St. Augustine College participates in the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI), a statewide agreement that ensures full transferability of general education courses completed by students at any of the participating institutions. Each student is required to complete the General Education Core Curriculum including qualifying courses in the areas of Communication (English), Mathematics, Science and Health, Humanities and Fine Arts, and Behavioral and Social Sciences. The specific General Education Core Curriculum requirements, however, are different for the Associate of Arts and the Associate of Applied Science degrees. See the College Catalog for a complete list of the General Education requirements for each degree.
