Chicago Heights, IL–(ENEWSPF)– Prairie State College (PSC) is giving high school seniors the chance to try the college—for free.
PSC is offering high school seniors, the class of 2011, the opportunity to take one course with no charge for tuition.
“This is a great opportunity for high school seniors to see why PSC is an excellent place to start a college education,” said Beth Wyack, enrollment advisor. “Students benefit from the free course by experiencing first-hand everything PSC has to offer while getting a college course under their belt.”
To be eligible, students must live within the Prairie State district, have a grade point average of at least 2.5 on a 4.0 scale, and obtain permission from their high school. Students who take advantage of the free course during the fall before their senior year, and earn a B or better, are eligible for a second tuition-free course in the spring of senior year.
For more information about the free course, please contact Wyack at (708) 709-7776 or e-mail [email protected].
Registration for fall courses is currently underway and continues until on August 23. Prior to registration, new students must complete an enrollment application in person at the college, located at 202 S. Halsted St., Chicago Heights, or online at prairiestate.edu. Current students may register online or in person. Hours of operation for Enrollment Services are Monday through Thursday, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
