Spring 2017 Registration Open at Prairie State College [12/6/2016]
It’s not too late to register for classes at Prairie State College (PSC) this spring! Students are encouraged to register soon as classes are filling up quickly.
PSC offers convenient, flexible credit course scheduling options, including 16-, 14-, 12- and eight- week courses. Classes are offered days, evenings, weekends and online to accommodate busy schedules. Non-credit courses include a variety of single-day and multiple-session offerings that begin throughout the semester.
The 16-week courses begin Tuesday, Jan. 17, 14-week courses begin Monday, Jan. 30, and 12-week courses begin Friday, Feb. 10. All 16-, 14- and 12-week courses end Thursday, May 11, and offer the same course material and credit hours. The shorter the number of weeks, the longer the class period.
PSC also offers two eight-week course options. The first eight-week courses begin Tuesday, Jan. 17 and end Friday, March 10. Second eight-week courses begin Monday, March 20 and end Thursday, May 11. 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 one 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 or online. Current students can register in person or log into WebAdvisor.
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.
The college also is offering a “Walk-in Wednesday” option, where students can come to the atrium at the main campus and meet with an advisor from Counseling and Advising, a financial aid counselor and a representative from enrollment services and register for the spring semester. These special registration sessions are available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and from 5 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7, 14 and 21.
