Registration Open for Fall Semester at Prairie State College [05/05/2017]
Start or continue your education at Prairie State College (PSC) this fall. Registration is open for credit and non-credit courses.
PSC offers 14-, 12- and eight-week options, with convenient start dates throughout the semester. Classes are offered during the day, evening and online to provide a flexible way for students to fit college into their busy lives.
The 16-week and first eight-week courses begin Aug. 21. Classes for the 14-week session begin Sept. 5 and 12-week courses begin Sept. 15. All courses offer the same course material and credit hours. For shorter weeks, class session times will be extended.
PSC offers two eight-week course options. The second eight-week session begins Oct. 16. Many of the college certificate programs offer eight-week courses, giving students an opportunity to fit two courses in a semester to make progress towards a certificate program. The eight-week courses typically offer fewer credit hours.
To register for credit courses, new students must complete an enrollment application in person at the college or online at prairiestate.edu/start. Beginning Monday, May 22, and through Friday, Aug. 11, Enrollment Services is open Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., and the college is closed on Fridays.
