Parkland Pathway to Illinois is a program by which Illinois high school graduates or GED recipients can begin as students at Parkland College and seamlessly transfer to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. While preparing to transfer, program participants will be able to integrate their experience as full-time Parkland students with using university resources and taking classes at Illinois.

The application for the Pathway to Illinois program opened March 5 on the U of I website, with a final deadline of April 5. Before you apply on the UIUC website, you need to complete your Parkland College Application at Apply Now. You will need your Parkland ID to apply to the Pathway Program. The Pathway program only offers a fall start, and priority is given to first-time college students.

More information is available at the University of Illinois Parkland Pathway web page or by calling 217/351-2482.
