If you are unfamiliar using the internet, email, uploading and downloading, or managing computer files, you may not be ready for online learning. A simple computer basics course, however, can help you learn these skills in a relatively short amount of time. One easy way to check if you're ready is to take the Online Assessment System for Internet Students (OASIS). From the OASIS homepage, select "Guest" at the top and begin the test. Your results will give you a recommendation on whether you are ready or not for online learning.
If you have never attended Chicago State University, you will need to apply for admission. Prospective students can receive admissions material online by accessing CSU's Office of Admissions homepage.
Once you are admitted to CSU, you may begin registering for online courses with CSU X-Press, which you can access in Cougar Connect. Students are required to register with the university according to the scheduled published in the university Class Schedule Bulletin. Registration is not complete until all fees are paid, or fee payment arrangements have been made with the Bursar and all registration materials are processed by the Office of the Registrar.
