Please see the below message from Holly Herrerra of Parkland College regarding enrollment in courses at Parkland:
As students are beginning to think about spring and summer courses at Parkland, I hope you will join me in encouraging all interested students to apply for non-degree admission to Parkland now. Then, when they are admitted, they should complete the appropriate Parkland Concurrent Enrollment form: http://provost.illinois.edu/programs/advising/ConcurrentEnrollment.html. For students receiving financial aid, they should continue to also complete the Financial Aid Concurrent Enrollment form: http://provost.illinois.edu/programs/advising/Parkland%20Concurrent%20En....
Students/advisors are now able to easily search for available courses at Parkland right from the home page: http://www.parkland.edu/ and click “Search for Classes” on the left toolbar.
If a student wishes to take a math course, or a course that has math as a prerequisite (e.g. CS or Physics), they must show proof of the prerequisite completed through their Academic History (not DARS audit) or ALEKS scores (a screenshot suffices). If they do not have either, they will be required to take Parkland’s math placement test. The break down for the Parkland ALEKS cutoffs follows:
65 places into Trigonometry
80 places a student into Calculus with Analytic Geometry
The relationship between Parkland and the University of Illinois has been in place for almost 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.
Spring deadlines follow:

I hold open, walk-in office hours in Parkland's Counseling and Advising Office on most Wednesdays from 9:00am – 3:00pm, so feel free to have students see me with questions or concerns. You can also give out my email address to every student who even mentions Parkland :)
