Home Schooled Enrollment Program

Underage enrollment for home schooled students
Home  :  Get Started  :  Home Schooled Enrollment Program  
Are you between 16 to 18 years old and haven’t yet graduated from home school? You can still take classes at Parkland College! The Underage Enrollment Program allows home-schooled students to earn credit toward a college degree; they may enroll in up to seven credit hours per semester, pending Parkland department chair approval.

NOTE: You’ll need to take placement tests to determine if you’re eligible to take college courses. Courses you may take do not include developmental (under 100-level) courses. Underage Enrollment Program students do not qualify for financial aid; however, their performance in these courses could affect their financial aid eligibility in the future.

To enroll as an underage student:
1.  Submit an application as a non-degree seeking student.
    • Online
      Complete and submit an online application.
    • Or by mail or fax
      Please type or print this application form and mail it to Admissions and Records, Parkland College, 2400 West Bradley Avenue, Champaign, IL 61821-1899 or fax it to 217/353-2640.
    • Or in person
      Stop by the Office of Admissions and Records (U214; 217/351-2208) to complete an application form.
      2.  Call the Assessment Center to schedule the appropriate placement tests (217/351-2432).

      3.  Stop by Admissions (U214) and request an Underage Home School Enrollment Form.

      4.  Once your tests are complete, meet with the Chair of the department where you would like to take classes. The Chair is required to sign your Underage Home School Enrollment Form.

      5.  Please bring the completed Underage Home School Enrollment Form to the Admissions (U214) to enroll in the course(s).
