An open house for adults in the Northwest suburbs who are looking to complete their bachelor's degrees will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 19, by Eastern Illinois University and District 214 Community Education.

The partnership between Eastern Illinois and District 214 Community Education paves the way for an adult degree-completion program with evening and weekend courses. This program is available online and in-person. Adults in the program can earn a bachelor's of arts in General Studies from Eastern.

The open house will be held at the Forest View Educational Center, 2121 S. Goebbert Road, in Arlington Heights, in Room A334 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The $30 application fee will be waived for those who attend. Enter through Door 4.

The Bachelor of Arts in General Studies is a flexible degree, allowing students with previous college credit to create their own program based on their professional and personal needs. Opportunities are offered to earn credit for learning that has taken place outside the classroom, such as work experience.

The program academic advisor has an office at District 214's Forest View Educational Center to meet with area residents and assist them with the application process and support them throughout their degree.
