Please see the following message from Holly Herrera of Parkland College for information on transferring credit from Parkland College to UIUC:
University of Illinois students need to begin with the appropriate Parkland Concurrent Enrollment form (Domestic or International) and complete it in its entirety (including providing the course rubric, number and section, i.e. ENG 220 – 201). As always, students need to attach a PDF of their Academic History (not DARS audit) to ensure that course pre-requisites are met. For students receiving financial aid, they should also complete the Financial Aid Concurrent Enrollment form.
The Parkland spring schedule is now available online. Students/advisors can easily search for available courses at Parkland right from the home page by clicking “Search for Classes” on the left toolbar. Open registration for all students will begin on November 6. Please note: the last day to register for classes is a firm date. There are no late add petitions and no exceptions.
If a student wishes to take a math course, or a course that has math as a prerequisite (e.g. CHEM, CS or Physics), they must show proof of the prerequisite completed through their Academic History (not DARS audit) or a screenshot of their ACT/SAT score (test taken within the last two years). If they do not have either, they will be required to take Parkland’s ALEKS assessment test in person. The break down for the ACT/SAT requirement cutoffs follow (scores are valid for two years):
SAT MATH Score
ACT MATH Score
Parkland Course Placement
MAT 108 (STAT 100 equiv)
MAT 124 (MATH 112 equiv)
MAT 125, 141, 143, 145, 160, 200 (MATH 115, 124, 143, 125, and ECON 202 equiv)
MAT 128 (MATH 128 equiv)
The relationship between Parkland and the University of Illinois has been in place for 50 years and works very well, but if Illinois students do not apply and get admitted, they will receive no special treatment (e.g. priority or rush processing so that they can register). They should apply early in the case that they are even thinking of taking a course.
