Although Parkland College's full-semester classes are now in session, another range of classes is available to students who still wish to enroll.

Registration is now open for Parkland's Late-Start Class session, which begins the week of January 31.

Residents can earn full-semester college credit in just 13 weeks, in classes taught at a slightly more accelerated pace than full-semester classes. Students can select from transferable, virtual, and in-person courses in math, biology, education, English, foreign languages, astronomy, and many other subjects, plus career-specialty classes in aviation, agriculture, health professions, computer science, and more. 

Registration for the 13-week session ends January 30. To get started at Parkland College, visit parkland.edu/getStarted or contact Admissions and Records at 217/351-2482 or admissions@parkland.edu.
