High school students can learn more about a Parkland College program guaranteeing them admission in selected colleges at the University of Illinois while saving money on tuition.
The Parkland Pathway to Illinois Program Information Open House will be held Sunday, Feb. 10 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Parkland College Student Union. Prospective students and their parents are welcome to attend.
Representatives from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Parkland will answer questions about the Parkland Pathway to Illinois Program, including eligibility, housing options, financial aid, admissions, and other topics.
For qualifying Illinois high school graduates who begin college at Parkland and are interested in transferring to the University of Illinois, the program is an opportunity to gain guaranteed admission to certain University of Illinois programs. While preparing to transfer, participating students will be able to integrate their time as full-time Parkland students with resources and classes at Illinois. Pathway students typically complete the program in two years, but AP credit and college credit earned in high school may affect program length.
For questions about the program, please go to parkland.edu/UIUCpathway, call Mary Kay Smith at 217/351-2509 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
