Harper is the destination for thousands of Illinois high school students each year. Here's why:
Harper College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, the same organization that accredits four-year colleges and universities in the Midwest, such as University of Illinois and Northwestern University. View academic programs.
Imagine saving up to $63,300 in college expenses and still achieving academic success! It's possible when you compare Harper to the cost of two years at a major university.
Choose from career-focused associate degrees, technical certifications, two-year bachelor transfer degrees. You can get started mid-semester with flexible and short-term courses. You may be able to earn college credit while still in high school.
Thousands of students have successfully transferred from Harper to public and private colleges and universities, including the Big 10 and Ivy League. Begin your bachelor's at Harper and then transfer.
