Admission to Health Professions Programs

Chapter 112, Section 103-17, of the Illinois Public Community College Act requires that whenever enrollment in a program must be restricted because of space limitations, a college must give preference to district residents. These regulations apply to the following Health Professions programs:

Neurodiagnostic Technology, Nursing, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Practical Nurse, Radiography, Respiratory Care, Surgical Technology, Medical Coding, LPN to ADN transition.

Consequently, admissions to Health Professions programs for students who live outside of LLCC District 526 vary per program based on space availability and qualified applicant pool. For program specific admissions criteria, contact Health Professions advising staff, Springfield campus.
