Eureka Transfer Students
discovering - the need for a change
College is a time of discovery - and sometimes what you discover is that another school is what you need. With small classes, excellent academics, a close-knit community, and a rich heritage and tradition, Eureka College offers an environment you won't find on many other campuses.
Just as important, Eureka offers an environment of welcome and understanding for transfer students. In fact, about a quarter of our students joined our community as transfers. They discovered that Eureka is the right place for them, and they tell us they feel very much at home here.
EUREKA TRANSFER - 101
At least 124 semester hours, with an overall GPA of at least 2.0 are required to graduate from Eureka college. This can include transferred credit as well as credit for coursework completed on campus. The transfer of college-level credits is done on an individual basis, with the goal of ensuring that each student receives the exact and maximum credit due for work completed. A grade of "C" or better in transferable courses from recognized colleges and universities is required for credit to be granted.
From community (two-year) colleges
Eureka College will accept up to 68 hours of credit from two-year institutions. Students entering Eureka with 68 ccredits or a completed Associate's degree from a recognized institution will enter the Junior class.
From four-year colleges and universities
Students transferring from accredited four-year institutions may transfer more than 68 credits that they have earned. A Eureka degree requires, however, that at least the last 30 hours of a student's coursework must be completed on the Eureka campus.
Students transferring with fewer than 30 college credits will follow the same admissions procedures as entering first-year students.
TWO-YEAR COLLEGE ARTICULATION AGREEMENTS
Eureka College is part of the Illinois Articulation Initiative, which has outlined a common set of transferable general education requirements among a wide range of participating colleges and universities around the state. Courses you have taken under this agreement will transfer to Eureka and satisfy specific requriement toward your baccalaureate degree - no ifs, and, or buts!
