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 OPEN HOUSE. Complete the registration form below and we'll invite you to join us at an upcoming spring 2015 Open House.  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 an application if you like what you see


When are students admitted to the CRCP?

Program enrollment follows an academic calendar. Typically students are admitted several weeks in advance of the fall, spring and summer terms at our academic institutions. We currently have an extensive waiting list for spring 2014. Register now to be invited to an open house when we resume them in the spring for summer 2014 enrollment.

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

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

Are there specific age requirements for the program?

You must be at least 17 years old to be admitted to the CRCP. There is no age limit.
