CHICAGO HEIGHTS | Busy work schedules, family obligations, and changing life situations can make it difficult to start college classes at the beginning of the semester. For those who were unable to begin classes in January, Prairie State College offers many courses beginning Feb. 14.
Students need to register for courses as soon as possible because availability is limited. Registration for Late Start courses is ongoing and will continue until the courses begin or are filled.
PSC offers more than 40 Late Start courses, which run for 12 weeks instead of 16 weeks. Late Start courses have longer class times to compensate for their abbreviated schedule, and cover the same amount of material as the 16-week courses. Late Start courses also offer the same number of credits as the 16-week courses, and satisfy the same requirements for students working toward a degree or certificate.
Late Start course offerings include art, astronomy, biology, business, communication, graphic communications, history, humanities, information technology, music, photography, psychology, sociology, and more.
Prior to registration, new students must complete an enrollment application, either in person, at the college, located at 202 S. Halsted St., or online at prairiestate.edu. Current students may register online or in person. Enrollment Services is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday.
