Eastern Illinois University has a cooperative Baccalaureate in Nursing program with Lakeview College of Nursing, Danville, IL in which students who wish to complete a BSN can remain on the EIU campus while enrolled in the Lakeview College of Nursing program.  Students must apply to and meet the admission criteria for Lakeview and EIU.  When enrolled in the Lakeview program, students pay tuition to Lakeview.  The degree is awarded from Lakeview College of Nursing. 

Eastern Illinois University has entered into a “3+3” affiliation agreement with Logan College of Chiropractic (LCC).  This guaranteed admissions program allows qualified students to attend Logan after 3 years (90 credits) at Eastern and finish a doctor of Chiropractic degree after 3 additional years at Logan.  Under the 2004 agreement, Logan College of Chiropractic shall accept students who successfully complete the Pre-Chiropractic Program with a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher and meet all other criteria for admission.  Upon completion of the first year of studies at LCC, a maximum of 34 LCC credits may be transferred back to EIU toward completion of credits required for the Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences degree at Eastern.
