Southern Illinois University

Students can earn their degree from Southern Illinois University, but their class work will take place on SCC's campus. This partnership between Shawnee and SIU began during the fall 2007 semester. Three disciplines through SIU will be available. The Early Childhood Preschool/Primary degree is for students interested in teaching children grades Pre-K through 3rd Grade. The Workforce Education program is designed for anyone with an Associate's degree to earn a bachelor's degree. SCC has articulated the Parole Officer degree with the Workforce Education Program and will give correctional officers employed by the Illinois Department of Corrections credit for their academy training. For more information, contact Sarita Robinson, SIU Liaison at 618-634-3330. Her office is located on the SCC main campus, H2090.

Mid-Continent University

Welcome Shawnee Community College students & graduate!

Congratulations on taking the next step in continuing your education. The Mid-Continent University Advantage Program has an established tradition of being affordable, accessible, and achievable. You have the option of completing your Bachelor's degree locally at Shawnee Community College or through our ONLINE degree completion program.

The convenience and service of the Advantage Program is second to none, and many area working adults have completed their education in approximately 18 months. Local classes meet just one night a week, making it possible for adults to reach their elusive goal of finishing what they started at Shawnee Community College. Both the ONLINE and face to face options allow the student to maintain full time status, enhancing opportunities for loans and grants.

Shawnee Community College has partnered with Mid-Continent University to offer a 2 + 2 agreement for increasing the purpose of your convenience and easing the transition process. Mid Continent allows you to transfer up to 80 credits from Shawnee Community College, or other accredited colleges that you may have attended. Mid-Continent is very "community college graduate" friendly, in that most credits, even in the technical areas, are transferable. This program is designed for adults with approximately 2 years of prior college and 24 years of age.

The ADVANTAGE Program offers educational opportunities for adult students. The Bachelor of Science program enables adults 25 years of age or older who have completed approximately 60 hours of college credit to complete a Bachelor Degree in Business Management. This program is designed to remove the barriers that commonly prevent busy adults from reaching their educational goals. Some of the program highlights include:

  • Attend class one evening each week/one class at a time
  • Attend class in your own community
  • Academic advising, financial aid, book delivery, and registration provided at your class site
  • Acceptance of "old" credits from years gone by
  • Opportunity to pursue credit for training and learning obtained through the workplace
  • Improving communication, management, and other skills to enhance job performance
  • Receiving individualized instruction within a small class structure
  • Completing a fully accredited Bachelor of Science degree in less than two years
  • Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools
