Fall 2009 Extension Services

Registration Information

BY MAIL OR FAX: Contact the Department of Extension Services at (773) 995-2214 for a mail in/fax registration form. Mail the extension registration form with your tuition fees to the Department of Extension Services, Chicago State University, 9501 S. King Drive, JDC 201, Chicago, Illinois 60628.  You also can fax your registration form to (773) 995-2941. Tuition may be paid by check, money order, Discover, VISA, or MasterCard. Call the Department of Extension Services for tuition payment instructions.  The deadline for registering by mail or fax is Monday, August 31, 2009.

ON CAMPUS: Students registering exclusively for off-campus courses can register in the extension services department, JDC 201, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. If enrolling in a combination of on-campus and off-campus courses, students must register via CSU X-Press.

IN CLASS: Unless noted otherwise in the individual class information, you may register at the first session of a class, if the course is still open. You are strongly urged to register prior to the first class since some courses fill quickly.

ON THE WEB: A degree-seeking student must obtain a current registration advising PIN (RAP) from an academic advisor during the advisement session.  At-large students do not need a RAP to register through the CSU X-Press web registration system.  Students may register online between April 27 and July 29.  See fall 2009 calendar for registration details.

FEES: Tuition is based on the status of the student, not the status of the class. Tuition is subject to change.


Note: Updated tuition and fee rates for the fall 2009 term were not available at the time of publication.  Please contact the Office of Financial Affairs for more information at (773) 995-2470.

TUITION PAYMENT OPTIONS:Tuition payments can be made by check or money order. Mail to the Department of Extension Services, 9501 S. King Drive, JDC 201, Chicago, Illinois 60628. Write the correct course number and section number on the check or money order. Also, enclose a telephone number where you can be reached, if required. Please mail at least seven days prior to the due date. Call the CSU cashier’s office directly at (773) 995-2029 to make credit card payments with Discover, MasterCard or VISA, or go online at www. csu.edu . See Fee and Payment information for additional instructions.

INSTALLMENT PLAN: Only students registered for six hours or more are eligible for the installment plan. There is an additional service fee based on the installment plan selected. Students choosing the installment plan option must utilize the tuition management installment plan, as presented in the Fee and Payment Information section.

REFUNDS: See Refund Policy in the Fee and Payment Information section.

CLASS SIZE:The university reserves the right to limit the size of classes and to cancel due to insufficient enrollment.

CLASS MEETING: Normally, classes meet once a week for 16 weeks. Sessions consist of 50 minutes of instruction each week for each credit hour, (i.e., a three credit hour course meets 150 minutes per week). Courses meeting for fewer than sixteen weeks compensate with more frequent and/or longer class meeting each week, as detailed in the individual class listing.

PREREQUISITES: Course prerequisites are stated in the Chicago State University Catalog or on the web site: www.csu.edu/catalogs/.


Students enrolling in graduate courses for the first time and who are not currently admitted to a graduate degree program are required to complete a graduate-at-large Application. A $25 application fee must be submitted with the at-large application. Additionally, proof of a bachelor’s degree must be submitted with the application, (i.e., copy of a transcript illustrating an awarded degree, copy of diploma, or state teaching certificate). Graduate-at-large students who have not enrolled in a course at CSU within two years or more, but left in good standing, are required to complete a readmit form. A fee is not required with this form. Admitted students who have not attended CSU within the last two years must obtain a departmental advisor’s signature. Submit your extension registration form, at-large application or readmit form, proof of degree, tuition fee, and $25 at-large application fee to your instructor or an extension services department representative on the first day of the class, or submit to the extension services department on campus (JDC 201) if enrolling only in extension courses.
