    Transfer requirements of UIUC??

    I am attending kankakee community college in kankakee illinois. www.kcc.edu
    I will have an accociates in engineering science when i complete the whole curriculum.

    I am wondering what classes are needed to transfer to the univeristy of illinois.
    Alot of people are saying you need 3 credits of spanish so they cant get in, and all kinds of things. Talking about how impossible it is to transfer to this college.

    I am looking to go into nuclear engineering there, if someone could give me a guideline of what i should do and which classes i need other than the ones im taking now to increase my chances of transfering there.

    Engineering Science (10 courses) Credit hours: 35
    Complete all four sub-requirements:
    1. Computer Science - 3 credit hours
    * COSC 2613 - Computer Programming for Science and Engineering
    2. Engineering - 12 credit hours
    * ENGR 1513 - Engineering Graphics
    * ENGR 1613 - Statics
    * ENGR 1623 - Dynamics
    * ENGR 2613 - Electrical Circuits and Networks
    3. Mathematics - 8 credit hours
    * MATH 2535 - Calculus and Analytic Geometry III
    * MATH 2613 - Differential Equations
    4. Physics - 12 credit hours
    * PHYS 2614 - Physics I
    * PHYS 2624 - Physics II
    * PHYS 2634 - Physics III
    Communications General Education (2 courses) Credit hours: 6
    Both courses must be completed with a grade of C or higher.
    * ENGL 1613 - English I
    * ENGL 1623 - English II
    Laboratory Science General Education (2 courses) Credit hours: 8
    * CHEM 1514 - General Chemistry I
    * CHEM 1524 - General Chemistry II
    Mathematics General Education (2 courses) Credit hours: 8
    * MATH 2515 - Calculus and Analytic Geometry I
    * MATH 2523 - Calculus and Analytic Geometry II

    Humanities General Education (1 course) Credit hours: 3

    Social and Behavioral Science (2 courses) Credit hours: 6

    This is the schedule i will have completed when i try and transfer.

    I don't mean to sound harsh here, but with such a specific question you really do need to call/e-mail/visit the University of Illinois and talk to somebody in Undergraduate Education (or their similarly-named administrative unit) rather than solicit advice on the internet.

    Have you at least looked on the UIUC web site for the official requirements for transfer students? Surely they must have something online.

    Was banking on someone here might have gone there. Its very high ranked, if not #1 in the nation. If they went for Nuke then they would know exactly the answer. But yes im doing research on my own of course. More information from anybody cant hurt.

    I would strongly suggest getting an appointment with an advisor at the university. Requirements/expectations may have changed since whomever responds here attended classes. The advisor will also be of more help with the specific's of your schedule.
