About the Webinar

This session will explore the “2+2 pathway” and share information for international students interested in information about transfer options from community college to top U.S. universities. Elgin Community College will share how you can start your U.S. education at a community college and then transfer to a top four-year university. If you’re planning to transfer to a four-year institution, there’s a lot to think about. Which colleges offer the program you’re interested in? With 2+2 transfer pathways, you can complete the first two years of your bachelor’s degree at ECC and then transfer to a four year university partner, such as University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, DePaul University, Arizona State University, the University of Iowa, and many more. Participants will come away with an understanding of the fundamentals of the 2+2 transfer pathway and how starting at Elgin Community College can help you reach your goals of attaining a bachelor’s degree.
