Ready. Set. Go!
If you have received your acceptance letter to Parkland College, here are some of the next steps.
College is more than classes. It's where you learn to become a leader, find new perspectives, and discover things about yourself. We offer 25+ clubs and organizations that help you do just that.
Your college experience can be anything you would like it to be, so don't be afraid to dream big. One way to do that is to study in a foreign country and really learn what other cultures are like.
Parkland's Center for Academic Success in Room D120 is the one-stop learning assistance center for students. We provide peer-tutoring, a writing lab staffed by English faculty, study skills training, and other services.
We will soon send you email about how to set up your Parkland College student accounts. E-tools is a great place to start if you need more help with that process.

A degree-seeking student must have recent assessment scores in math, English, and reading before registering for classes. There are multiple ways to obtain placement. Parkland placement tests, ACT/SAT scores, high school courses and GPA, and previous college work can all be used. ACT/SAT scores as well as high school and college transcripts should all be submitted to Admissions and Records at Admissions@parkland.edu. To determine what testing you will need, please contact the Assessment Center. Until further notice, all placement testing has been moved online and can be completed remotely.
