HCC signs elementary education pathway agreement 

FREEPORT — Highland Community College recently signed an elementary education pathway agreement with Western Illinois University. 

The agreement will create a path from high school through college for the completion of a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. High school students will begin with dual credits, compete an associate degree at HCC and then finish their bachelor’s from WIU while at the Highland campus.  

Students who have already completed their associate’s degree are eligible for the program.
