Transferring to Judson is Simple and Easy!

Judson University takes part in the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI). If you transfer from an IAI participating school, many of your general education courses can be easily transferred to Judson. To see which courses transfer, check out the IAI General Education Course Curriculum Worksheet. Not from Illinois or an IAI participating school? Not a problem! Judson's Registrar's Office will work closely with you to determine which classes transfer. Contact us via

Transfer Student Testimonials

Fatima"Transferring in the middle of the semester was very hard in the beginning. But then through my classes, I met my best friend. Now, I’m very well-known on campus now and very outgoing. I feel very loved here and I love everyone at this campus … I had many goals that I wanted to accomplish when I came to Judson. Now being at Judson I have been able to build close friendships and relationships with professors and coaches. "

2015 Aaron Goluba"From the start I knew I wanted to attend Judson. I hadn't done all too well in high school, so I was afraid I'd never make it into a university. So I went to McHenry County College for two semesters and built up my GPA, and now I'm at Judson. Since I've been here, I've grown immensely in both knowledge and the word of God."

2015 Michaela Strick"As a transfer student, Judson has opened doors for me that I never would have imagined. Everyone who was involved in my coming here, from admissions to my faculty advisor to my softball coach, has made me feel welcome and right at home. Judson has helped me grow as an individual: spiritually and academically. I am excited to finish my bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science Health and Wellness and further my goal of pursuing a master’s degree."

Chris Kerswell"I came to Judson to experience a different culture, [different] seasons, and to play college sports while studying. Additionally, I came to Judson to be able to travel the United States and see the opportunities it has to offer. [Judson] has allowed me to make a lot of connections that have helped bring me into a bigger family. Judson has been more than accommodating with giving financial support as well as supporting me with getting my degree."
