To take classes at Parkland College, you must fill out an application. You should apply as a non-degree-seeking student. The courses will be for credit, but you won’t be eligible for financial aid in that status. More information on your choices is available at Enrollment Options.
Once you have applied, we will send you email on how to set up your Parkland College student accounts. E-tools is a great place to start if you need more help with that process.
To take a class at Parkland, we need to verify that you have met the prerequisite for the class. Often, this can be done by emailing unofficial transcripts or test scores to email@example.com. University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign students should follow the concurrent enrollment process.
If you have not completed the prerequisite for the class, you may be asked to take an assessment test. Learn more about that process at the Assessment Center page.
