High school students wishing to attend the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign can learn more about a program at Parkland College that guarantees them enrollment at Illinois in selected colleges while saving college tuition costs.
The Parkland Pathway to Illinois Program Information Open House will be held on Sunday, February 12
from 2 to 4 p.m. and again on Monday, February 13
, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Tony Noel Agricultural Technology Applications Center on Parkland’s campus. Representatives from the University of Illinois and Parkland will be on hand to explain the Parkland Pathway to Illinois program and cover housing, financial aid, and other topics.
For qualifying Illinois high school students starting at Parkland and planning to transfer to UIUC, the Pathway program grants guaranteed admission to the university in selected colleges. While preparing to transfer, Pathway students will be able to integrate their time as full-time Parkland College students with resources and classes at Illinois. Admission to the program is competitive and is only available for select majors at Illinois. Low-income, first-generation students and students in underrepresented ethnic groups are highly encouraged to apply; first-time college students at the time of application will be given preference for admission.
