visit uS

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the office of Admissions is currently not able to meet with students in person.  We are encouraging students to email us at

Parkland College offers a wealth of opportunities to visit, get your questions answered, and tour our campus. From our Campus Visit Days to our annual Open House to specialty visits, a group visit can be a good first step in the Parkland College experience. Students who have particular questions often find that a one-on-one visit and tour work best. Just sign up for the one that's most convenient for you!

Virtual Campus Visit Day

While we are disappointed that we can not have you on campus with us at the moment, we are excited to invite you to join us on April 2 from 1-2:30 pm on Facebook Live for a Virtual Campus visit, where you will hear from Admissions staff and learn more about Parkland College!  We will discuss the application and enrollment process, financial aid, and how to get involved on campus.  We will also talk about the Parkland Pathway program and introduce you to our debt forgiveness program, Cobra Comeback.  We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

The presentation will begin at 1 pm and a link will be sent to your email on hour prior to the start of the event.  Please register here.

Parkland Preview Event

The Parkland Preview Event is geared to both incoming students and those that are still deciding.  The event includes information about housing, clubs, and student services, financial aid, Pathway to Illinois and a Parkland "experts" panel.  More information about a future Parkland Preview date will be made available on this web page.

Schedule a One-on-One Visit

Sometimes, it works best to sit down with an admissions advisor and get your specific questions answered. We are generally available 8am–5pm Monday through Friday (Monday through Thursday in the summer), please email us at

Current students with academic advising questions should contact Counseling.
