Parkland College, Early Transfer Academy (ETA) Informational Session, February 25th CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — High school and home school students and their families can learn more about an early college program that could reduce the time it takes to earn an associate's degree or bachelor's degree after high school.
An informational session on the Early Transfer Academy (ETA) has been set for Monday, Feb. 25th from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in Room U140 of Parkland College's Student Union. College faculty and administrators will be on hand to discuss the academy, its benefits to students, and the eligibility requirements for participation.
As participants in the ETA, high school juniors and seniors will enroll in early-morning classes at Parkland College that meet the State of Illinois' General Education Core Curriculum. The GECC "package" of courses will then transfer as lower-division, general education requirements at public colleges and universities across the state. This could mean a significant savings in college costs as well as a greater chance at college success because of experiences gained on Parkland's campus.
"I was really excited about getting my college credit done as soon as possible," said one current ETA student. "I just really want to get on with my career."
All families are welcome to attend the information session; however, parents of current sophomore- and junior-level students will have particular interest in attending, as these students will be the participants in the ETA.
For more information on Parkland College's Early Transfer Academy, please visit parkland.edu/ETA. For questions, contact the Parkland College Early College Services office at 217/353-2663.
