4 Program BenefitsOpportunity to blend your educational experiencesGuaranteed admission to your Illinois college or majorStipulationsDual AdvisingIllinois instructionAccess to some Illinois student resourcesKristinMost CC students who plan to transfer spend about two years at the CC and then suddenly move to the university. You will have the chance to begin your university experience while you are a Parkland student. You will also have the opportunity to continue your Parkland experience after you have transferred.You are guaranteed admission to the major indicated on the back of your letter of admission to Pathway. For the guarantee to hold, you will need to meet criteria to be discussed in a bit.You will meet today with representatives of your Illinois college. You will have access to Illinois advising as well as Parkland College counseling that most Parkland students will not be able to use until after they transfer. You will develop one-on-one relationships over the next two years, and those relationships will continue post transfer.Some challenges…Navigation of two institutions will require extra attention to time management.Both institutions will offer opportunities for engagement, so being selective will be critical.Campuses are geographically close, but travel will take careful planning.Ready to move to college-level work.Transfer criteria are generally higher than what a degree-seeking student would need to stay off probation.The primary benefit: You are a student at two great institutions at one time, giving you unique access to a wide range of resources.
