Carl Sandburg College and Knox College announced an admission deal for students who want to pursue a bachelor's degree at Knox after completing an associate's at Sandburg.

“We have a lot of these dual admission partnerships, and the reason we have them is very simple: For our students, we want them to begin with the end in mind,” Sandburg President Lori Sundberg said. “Where someone gets their bachelor’s degree is very much about a fit for that person and where they want to end up. We want to create opportunities for our students where they can have an opportunity right here at Knox College or anywhere else they might have a good fit.”

In the past five years, 40 Sandburg graduates have gone on to attend Knox with 18 completing their degrees. Fifteen Sandburg alumni currently attend Knox.

“This is already a step that has been taken organically between the two schools. It makes perfect sense because we believe the students here at Carl Sandburg College are ambitious and creative and inquisitive, and they are looking for the next step,” Knox President Teresa Amott said. “For some of those students, we can ease that step and create a smoother, more seamless opportunity for them to transfer to Knox through this dual admission program.

Students who meet the dual admission program’s requirements are offered a guaranteed pathway for admission and enrollment with junior standing, as well as a scholarship, at Knox upon graduating from Sandburg.
