The Dual Admission Program is designed to bridge the transfer process for Southwestern Illinois College students to participating four-year colleges and universities. Students who fulfill the requirements of their dual admission agreement are guaranteed acceptance into their intended college/university with full junior status. Please note, however, that while acceptance to a particular college/university is guaranteed, acceptance into a specific program will vary based on departmental requirements.
Benefits of Dual Admission
- Guaranteed acceptance to a four-year college or university
- Access to academic advising at both institutions
- Students completing their Associate in Arts, Associate in Science or Associate in Fine Arts degrees will be placed at junior status at the four-year college/university and all general education requirements will be met
- Students can take advantage of tuition savings at the community college level for the first two years of general education
- Access to degree audit systems at both institutions
- Additional benefits may be available, but vary by participating schools
