Aviation Institute Plane

APPLY EARLY. HERE'S WHY.

Spring 2023 - Selective admissions will be used with priority given to those that apply before deadline dates. However, we will continue to review application after deadline dates as space allows. Apply early as space will be limited due to staff restrictions and flight times.  Students must complete the admissions process and aviation checklist before being approved for scoring. There is no guarantee that completed and scored applications will be placed.

Summer 2023 - Apply early as space is limited. The medical exam certificate must be received by the Institute of Aviation prior to course registration consideration. There is no guarantee that completed applications will be placed.  Course offerings are dependent on current student enrollment and staff level availability.

Fall 2023 - Selective admissions will be used with priority given to those that apply before deadline dates. However, we will continue to review application after deadline dates as space allows. Apply early as space will be limited due to staff restrictions and flight times.  Students must complete the admissions process and aviation checklist before being approved for scoring. There is no guarantee that completed and scored applications will be placed.

 

After Applying: Ready for Academic Advising and Registration?

If you are a degree-seeking student at Parkland and your goal is to obtain the AS in Aviation, then your Academic Success Advisor will be Myriah Benner-Coogan.

(Note: during peak registration times in December/January and August, there are not many advanced appointment options as Advising Services mainly does walk-ins at those times)

If you are a degree-seeking student at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, please follow the concurrent enrollment process found here. Once the concurrent enrollment process is complete, Parkland Admissions will notify Wendy Evans, Aviation Program Manager, who will then register you for the appropriate AVI course if eligible. If you have any questions, please contact Wendy at wevans@parkland.edu.

You will be a non-degree seeking student at Parkland BUT you can still earn the AS, Aviation degree from Parkland once your AVI sequence is complete.

If you are a student that is still in high school, please work with Early College Services for your enrollment process. You can find their information here. If eligible, ECS will work with aviation for your course registration.

If you only intend to earn your Private Pilot’s License and you will only be a student at Parkland, then feel free to work with Wendy Evans, Aviation Program Manager, for your AVI 101 and AVI 120 registration. You can reach Wendy at wevans@parkland.edu or 217-353-2171.
