Chicago Heights, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Busy work schedules, family obligations, and changing life situations can make it difficult to start college classes at the beginning of the semester. For those who were unable to begin classes in August, Prairie State College (PSC) offers a several courses beginning September 17.
Students need to register for courses as soon as possible since availability is limited. Registration for Late Start courses is ongoing and will continue until the courses begin or are filled.
The college offers more than 40 Late Start courses, which run for 12 weeks instead of 16 weeks. To compensate for their abbreviated schedule, Late Start courses have longer class times and cover the same amount of material as 16-week courses. Late Start courses also offer the same number of credits as the 16-week courses and satisfy the same requirements for students working toward a degree or certificate.
Late Start course offerings include art, astronomy, automotive, biology, business, English, graphic communications, humanities, information technology, math, music, psychology, sociology, and more. A complete listing of course offerings can be viewed on the college’s Web site at prairiestate.edu; click on WebAdvisor.
