Requirements for Admission


Welcome to Prospective Student Registration information


Admission is open to all in-district residents of Community College District 518 who are high school graduates or the equivalent (GED), or non-graduates who are at least 18 years of age. Tuition for residents of Community College District 518 is charged at an in-district rate per semester hour for tuition in the 20xx-20xx academic year. Students must live in Community College District 518 30 days prior to the beginning of the term and have the intention to live here permanently in order to qualify for in-district tuition. Otherwise, a student will be considered out of district or out of state and will pay a slightly higher tuition rate. Please check with the Business Office on the current tuition rates.


Admission to the College does not ensure admission to a particular course or program of study. Should it be necessary to limit enrollment, priority will be given to residents of Carl Sandburg College District 518 or to residents of a community college district involved in a cooperative agreement with Carl Sandburg College. The College reserves the right to establish selective admission requirements for any or all programs. All programs and their respective admission requirements will be identified in the College catalog.


Carl Sandburg College will not discriminate in the admission of students on the basis of race, color, creed, sex, sexual preference, disability, or national origin.
