UIS signs transfer agreement with Lewis and Clark Community College

The University of Illinois Springfield and Lewis and Clark Community College, located in Godfrey, Ill., have finalized a Transfer Articulation Agreement for students interested in Management Information Systems (MIS), Accountancy, Management, and Business Administration degrees.

The 2+2 agreement will establish a seamless transfer for LCCC students into the undergraduate programs at UIS and allow them to finish their bachelor’s degree.

“These agreements serve as effective and accurate road maps for the student who wants to earn their undergraduate degree in a timely manner,” said Raymond Barnett, UIS Admissions Transfer Coordinator.

The agreement with LCCC is one of many future Articulation Agreements that are on the horizon to be approved by partner community colleges and UIS. As a part of the LCCC agreement, the two schools worked out a 2+2 curriculum guide to assist students when choosing their classes. The guide, along with materials for other community colleges, can be found at

“The agreement confirms the continuing Joint Admissions Agreement between UIS and LCCC, which assures students who sign the agreement a seamless transition from LCCC to UIS,” said Barnett.

The partnership was made possible thanks to the leadership of Dyanne Ferk, Helene Bea, and the department chairs in the UIS College of Business and Management who played an important role in all the phases of the articulation.

“The College of Business and Management has been of great value at networking with the faculty of LCCC (as well as a number of other community colleges) in making this ‘road map’ one that will lead the student to a successful realization of their goal,” said Barnett.

UIS currently has transfer agreements with Harper College, Heartland Community College, Illinois Central College, Lincoln Land Community College, Richland Community College, and Rock Valley College for a number of degree programs. UIS already has an existing Computer Science 2+2 agreement with Lewis and Clark Community College. For a full list of 2+2 transfer agreements visit:
