The Engineering Pathways partnership between Wright and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) offers qualifying high school applicants guaranteed admission to UIUC’s College of Engineering. Students must apply to the competitive program and enroll in an associate degree program at Wright College.

Following successful completion of Pathways program course requirements, students are guaranteed admission to the University of Illinois’ College of Engineering in their junior year of study. UIUC’s College of Engineering is ranked sixth in the nation by U.S. News & World Report (September 2014).

Wright College transfer students admitted through the Engineering Pathways program will save close to $35,000 in tuition in fees over UIUC Engineering students admitted as college freshmen.

Wright College will host an Engineering Pathways Information Session on Thursday, November 6, at 7: 00 p.m., in the Faculty Dining Room of the Science Building. Representatives from Wright College and the University of Illinois’ College of Engineering will conduct the session and will answer questions from prospective students and their families. Another session is scheduled for February 26, 2015.

Please note: the Engineering Pathways transfer partnership program is exclusively for incoming freshmen, not currently enrolled students.

More information is available at the Engineering Pathways website.
