How to Apply

If you want to go to college and need help paying for it, the Chicagoland Regional College Program offers a way to make it happen. The first step toward becoming part of the CRCP is to ATTEND AN INFO SESSION. Complete the registration form below and we'll invite you to join us at an upcoming 2017 Info Session.  There you'll get the opportunity to:

  • Get all the program details 
  • Learn what it’s like to be a CRCP student 
  • Hear about the UPS job 
  • Meet a CRCP representative who can answer your questions 
  • Complete a CRCP application if you like what you see
  • Get connected to UPS to begin the application process


When are students admitted to the CRCP?

Program enrollment follows an academic calendar. Typically students are admitted several weeks in advance of the fall and spring terms at our academic institutions. New UPS hires who are CRCP eligible can be enrolled in the program up to the semester-mid term. Register now to be invited to an open house to begin the admissions process for the next academic term.

What requirements do I have to meet to be in the program?

You must be enrolled at either CSU, GSU, MVCC, Morton College, Olive-Harvey College, Prairie State College or Richard J. Daley College and be newly employed at UPS at the Hodgkins, IL facility as a package handler in Operations on the Sunrise or Night shifts.

Are there specific age requirements for the program?

You must be at least 17 years old for UPS employment. There is no age limit.
