Transfer Students for Credit Courses

Step 1. Apply

Complete an enrollment application online, or complete one in person in Enrollment Services. We can answer your questions, and show you what Prairie State College will do to help you move forward with your education. We also can connect you with one of our financial aid representatives. Allow three days for processing the online application.

Step 2. Transcripts

Send your official transcripts* and request an evaluation of official transcripts to determine how courses will transfer to PSC.

Step 3. COMPASS Test, ACT Scores, or College Transcripts

Take the COMPASS Assessment Test or bring in ACT scores that are within the past five years, or present unofficial transcripts to advisor for course placement. The COMPASS Assessment Test determines your placement in English, math, and reading. No appointment necessary. Contact the testing center for times at (708) 709-3558, or visit COMPASS Assessment Testing and Placement online. Unofficial transcripts can be used to determine a preliminary placement and determine the need for COMPASS testing.

Step 4. Advisor

Meet with an advisor to select courses and complete the registration form. No appointment necessary.

Step 5. Register

Register in person for courses in Enrollment Services.

Step 6. Payment

Pay tuition and fees in the Business Services Office. Don't let financial concerns stop you from enrolling at Prairie State College. Over half of PSC students receive financial aid. Talk to a financial aid representative at (708) 709-3735.

*Official transcripts are not required for enrollment at PSC. It is recommended that official transcripts be received and evaluated as soon as possible to ensure adequate advising and progress towards a degree or certificate.

What If I Never Attend?

Course attendance is important to academic success. You must attend the courses you register for at Prairie State College. If you register for a course and never attend, you run the risk of being dropped from the course(s). If you will be unable to attend any courses in which you enrolled, you must drop them. Refer to the academic calendar and the college refund table for applicable dates. Use the A-Z index where information is arranged alphabetically.
