Shimer College Announces Dual Enrollment with City Colleges of Chicago

The agreement marks a renewal of the relationship between the two institutions

Shimer College is pleased to announce a dual enrollment program with the City Colleges of Chicago that enables qualified CCC students to take Shimer courses for City College fees and to count those courses toward their Associate degrees.

Says Barbara Stone, Dean of the College, “We are pleased to renew our agreement with the Chicago City Colleges and look forward to welcoming students from the City Colleges into our classes. Students who have taken advantage of this opportunity have found it very rewarding, and some have enrolled at Shimer to complete their Bachelors. This agreement assures that City College and Shimer students will continue to learn together in the future.”

Humanities, Natural Science, Social Science and Integrative Studies courses are open to CCC students, including Evolution, Genetics & Animal Behavior, Foundations of Mathematics and Logic and Poetry, Drama & Fiction.

City College students who wish to participate in the Dual Enrollment program can apply for the program by submitting a copy of the application for the Dual Enrollment Program to the Great Books faculty at the City Colleges, the Transfer Center Director at the City College, and a copy to the Shimer Admission Office
