Transfer Admission Guarantee Program

Students may apply for the Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) program at Western Illinois University as soon as they have completed their application to Clinton, Muscatine or Scott Community Colleges and even while they are in high school. The TAG program offers students customized academic advising and degree progress reports at the completion of each semester while they earn their AA or AS Degree. Students who participate in the TAG program can also qualify for a $1,000 scholarship at WIU if they enroll at least part time immediately after their time at EICC and have a minimum 2.0 GPA. To participate, students apply to the TAG program prior to completing 30 credits at EICC. Visit the WIU TAG program site for more information.

How does the AA or AS degree from Clinton, Muscatine or Scott Community College transfer to WIU?

Both the Associates in Arts (AA) and the Associates in Science (AS) Degree will fulfill WIU General Education Requirements of the degree programs offered at WIU.
