Press Releases

Registration for Millikin University's Summer Immersion courses will begin on Wednesday, April 15, 2015. The catalog of Summer Immersion course offerings is currently available online at

Summer Immersion provides opportunities for students to earn credits during summer break and complete challenging courses with great topics. Summer Immersion is designed to fit the needs of current Millikin students, incoming freshmen, adult learners, students attending other universities, students wanting to take a summer online course and high school students wanting to gain credits in escrow.

For the 2015 summer, Millikin faculty have developed a variety of special learning opportunities available for all college students and area high school students. Adults not seeking to transfer college credits may enroll in most of the courses as "adult enrichment" students for $500.

The course offerings range from creative arts, biology field studies, driver's education, nursing, mathematics, culture studies and more.

In the creative arts, faculty have developed courses in printmaking, scriptwriting, haiku writing, opera and professional music recording. Summer professors have also developed several culture studies courses on Grimm's fairy tales, and several film courses on Ireland, World War II, Hollywood in the 1960s, Spielberg and "defeated cultures."

Millikin's summer courses are intimate and fast-paced. Each course has a small number of highly motivated students eager to immerse themselves in the questions and work.

Millikin University has significantly discounted tuition for its Summer Immersion 2015 courses. Individuals can register by fax at 217.420.6789, online at, or in person in the Registrar's Office, located in Gorin Hall, Room 16, on Millikin's campus.

Millikin University encourages students and adults to take advantage of Summer Immersion and develop new skills and concentrate on required courses. This unique opportunity can enable students to graduate early, improve grade point average or provide a great experience.
