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 can't 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 I am taking now to increase my chances of transfering there.

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 website 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 I am doing research on my own of course. More information from anybody can't 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.
