There’s Still Time to Register for Spring 2016 Classes at PSC [1/22/15]
The spring semester classes began on Tuesday, Jan. 19, at Prairie State College (PSC), but if a student was unable to start on that day, it’s still not too late to register for classes this semester.
PSC offers flexible scheduling, with 14-, 12- and eight-week course options. The 14-week courses begin on Feb. 1 and 12-week courses begin on Feb. 12. Both the 14- and 12- week courses offer the same course material with the same credit hours. The shorter the number of weeks, the longer the class period. Second eight-week courses start Tuesday, March 15, and end Thursday, May 12. The eight-week courses typically are fewer credit hours. Many of the college certificate programs offer eight-week courses, allowing students to fit two courses in a semester and to make progress towards that certificate.
For student convenience, classes are offered during the day, evening, online and Saturday.
Both credit and non-credit courses are listed in the spring class schedule, available on the PSC main campus, located at 202 S. Halsted St., Chicago Heights. The schedule also is available at area public libraries and online at prairiestate.edu.
To register for credit courses, new students must complete an enrollment application in person at the college or online. Current students can register for credit courses in person or online.
Enrollment Services is open Monday through Thursday, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Students can register for non-credit courses online or in person. To register online via Instant Enrollment, go to prairiestate.edu and follow the directions to choose How To Enroll under continuing education courses. Another option is to complete the registration form available in the back of the printed course schedule. Students also can register for non-credit courses in person at the Matteson Area Center, located at 4821 Southwick Drive in Matteson, or in the Enrollment Services Office on the PSC main campus. The Matteson Area Center is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
