These years are also an opportunity for students to explore many different subjects before deciding on a major, and it's a great way to save money. Lewis and Clark makes transferring to other institutions easy, as a participant of the Illinois Articulation Initiative, which guarantees general education credit at most Illinois colleges and universities. Further, Lewis and Clark has made agreements with a number of institutions like SIUC, SIUE and more to make sure students have a smooth transition after their years here. For those not wanting to leave town to continue their education, many colleges and universities also offer bachelor's and master's degrees right here on Lewis and Clark's campus.
