visit us

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!
