UIUC, Parkland reps to explain Pathway program, housing, financial aid, more
High school students wishing to attend the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign can learn more about a program at Parkland College that guarantees them enrollment at Illinois in selected colleges while saving college tuition costs.
The Parkland Pathway to Illinois Program Open House will be held on Feb. 10 from 1 to 4 p.m. in room D244 at Parkland. Representatives from the University of Illinois and Parkland will be on hand to explain the Parkland Pathway to Illinois program and cover housing, financial aid, and other topics.
Qualifying high school graduates participate in the Pathway program by beginning their college career at Parkland. As they prepare to transfer to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Pathway participants integrate their time as full-time Parkland students with resources and classes at Illinois. They can later gain admission to study select University of Illinois programs. Pathway students typically complete the program in two years, but AP credit and dual credit may affect program length.
Admission is competitive; low-income and first-generation students as well as students from underrepresented ethnic groups and/or the Parkland College district are encouraged to apply. Applicants who are first-time college students will be given preference for admission.
