Send a link to a friend
DECATUR — Adults interested in
earning a bachelor's degree are invited to attend the PACE program
open house at Millikin University on Thursday from 4:30 to 6 p.m. to
learn about an accelerated format with evening classes. The open
house activities will be in the lower level of Richards Treat
University Center, East Room, on the Millikin campus.
PACE offers bachelor's degrees in accounting, early childhood
education, elementary education, management, nursing RN to BSN, and
organizational leadership — all in the evening format — plus
educator licensure for adults who already hold a bachelor's degree
and want to move into a teaching career.
All majors offered in the
PACE format are offered on the Millikin campus, and the education
majors are offered on the Parkland College campus in Champaign.
Classes meet one night a week for five, eight or 10 weeks, depending
on the course. Because courses begin every five weeks, students can
begin their course work at various points in the academic year.
At the open house, prospective students can meet with academic
advisers to learn about the PACE format and discuss the degree
requirements for the various majors. Prospective students are
encouraged to bring their transcripts from any colleges or
universities they have previously attended, so the materials can be
reviewed by Millikin's registrar that evening. PACE students
generally transfer in a minimum of 12 college credit hours with a
grade-point average of at least 2.0. A financial aid representative
will also be available to address questions.

Millikin began offering the accelerated courses in the evenings
in 2003 as a response to a growing need in the community to provide
a quality baccalaureate education to busy adults juggling families,
careers and community responsibilities.
