CHICAGO HEIGHTS | Registration for summer courses at Prairie State College is opening soon. Priority registration begins Wednesday, and open registration begins Friday.
Course offerings include credit and noncredit courses, courses for students from other colleges or universities that are home for the summer, and free courses for high school seniors.
Credit courses include two eight-week summer sessions. The first session begins May 27 and ends July 17. The second session begins June 9 and ends Aug. 1. Classes are offered days, evenings, and online.
To register for credit courses, new students must complete an enrollment application in person at the college, at 202 S. Halsted St., in Chicago Heights, or online at prairiestate.edu by selecting Apply, Register, Pay. Current students can register for credit courses in person or online on WebAdvisor.
Credit courses also provide students who are home from college for the summer with the opportunity to fulfill general education requirements at a fraction of the cost, and transfer the credits back to their home college. Classes available include English, speech, biology, chemistry, history, and math. For more information, visit prairiestate.edu/summeronly.
