SPRINGFIELD — Leaders of Lincoln Land Community College (LLCC) and Illinois Wesleyan University announced Tuesday a new guaranteed admission agreement. The agreement will allow eligible LLCC graduates to transfer seamlessly to Illinois Wesleyan.
“This is a partnership that will benefit both of our institutions,” said Dr. Jason Dockter, interim vice president of academics at LLCC.
Under the agreement, students who start at LLCC and complete a transfer-oriented program, earning at least a 3.0 GPA, are guaranteed admission. In addition, students who plan to major in a select group of majors will be eligible with junior status. This means they can seamlessly apply their LLCC credits to complete the bachelor’s degree in four years.
Dr. Dockter said the agreement will assist LLCC students seeking to transfer to a high-quality, private university to complete their degree.
“We look forward to welcoming LLCC transfer students into our Titan community,” said Illinois Wesleyan president Dr. Georgia Nugent. “We also look forward to providing them with the resources and support they need to thrive academically, personally, and professionally. This partnership is beneficial for both institutions and will advance the educational vitality of our region.”
Students choosing to transfer will work with their success coaches to ensure they complete the courses in alignment. Illinois Wesleyan counselors will also be available to assist.
Lincoln Land Community College serves students from all or parts of 15 counties in central Illinois with college transfer and workforce development degree and certificate programs.
Located in Bloomington, Illinois Wesleyan is a private university that offers diverse curricula in liberal arts, fine arts, and professional programs.
