University of Missouri–St. Louis Chancellor Tom George and Southwestern Illinois College President Georgia Costello signed a Dual Admissions Program agreement on July 22 at SWIC’s main campus in Belleville, Ill. SWIC is a community college with three campuses and more than 20 off-campus sites.

The Dual Admissions Program will take effect this fall. It will enable SWIC students interested in continuing their education at UMSL the opportunity to access resources at both institutions, experience a seamless transfer of credits to UMSL and enroll at both schools simultaneously. Students who fulfill the requirements of the DAP are guaranteed acceptance into UMSL with full junior status.

Additionally, students in the DAP will be able to take courses at either institution or concurrently as long as the proper prerequisites have been met.
