spring registration

Registration for the spring 2016 semester has begun at Prairie State College (PSC). Current students can register beginning Monday, Oct. 19. New students can begin registering on Oct. 26. Students are encouraged to register early as classes will fill quickly.

PSC offers convenient, flexible scheduling options. Students can choose their schedule, their class, their time. Hundreds of courses are offered days, evenings, weekends, and online to accommodate busy schedules.

The 16-week courses begin Tuesday, Jan. 19. On Monday, Feb. 1, 14-week courses begin. The 12-week courses begin Friday, Feb. 12. All of these courses — 16-week, 14-week, and 12-week – end on Thursday, May 12, and offer the same course material with the same credit hours. The shorter the number of weeks, the longer the class period.

PSC also offers two different eight-week courses. First eight-week courses start Tuesday, Jan. 19 and end Monday, March 14. 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.

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.
