Nice job. You’re getting a head start.

Did you know that you can get your student pilot certificate when you’re 16? You can—and you can earn college credit at the Institute of Aviation while you’re going to high school.

Dual Credit

You have plenty of reasons to consider Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment through Parkland College, but here are just three:

  • Get a head start on college and your career
  • Affordable tuition (some high schools even offer assistance)
  • Gain experience as a college student, so you know what to expect from higher-level courses

Visit Parkland’s Dual Credit page for more info.

The college credits you earn may be transferable to other colleges and universities—talk to your high school counselor for details.

College Credit

If you only want to take a class or two for some college credit, call the Dual Credit office at 217/353-2663.
