Hello everyone. I'm hoping to move to Chicago by next Fall. I'm a full time university student in Florida currently. I will have 77 credits by next Fall and im hoping to complete my Finance undergrad in Chicago. Can you guys recommend a university where I can finish my degree without having too many credits not transfer over? The university doesn't need to be competitive. The university will have to be within the city or someplace that the subway can take me too as I will be living downtown and I won't have a car. Thanks!

You are going to have to contact each university on your own. How would we know specifically which credits would transfer from your specific university and which would not?

I will list for you the universities near subway/el lines that come to mind. This list is by no means complete: Loyola, Northwestern, University of Illinois, Roosevelt, Devry (you said it doesn't need to be competitive), DePaul, Robert Morris, University of Chicago and Northeastern (later two require el and bus depending on where you live). These come quickly to mind.

I hope that helps as a starting point for you to contact colleges re. possible credit transfers. Northeastern and University of Illinois are state schools. And of course, University of Chicago and Northwestern are highly competitive private schools.

We also have a number of City Colleges(they each go by a different name), however, I don't believe any of those offer BS/BA degrees in Business. They are mainly 2 year programs with some exceptions.

Most undergrad business (finance) majors go to either Depaul or IIT. Both campuses are in close proximity to public transport.

U of C and Northwestern do not offer undergrad business programs, only graduate programs.

North Park U. is also relatively close to the brown line.
