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.

CLASS MEETING: Normally, classes meet once a week for 14 - 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 16 weeks compensate with more frequent and/or longer class meetings each week, as detailed in the individual class listing. Courses meeting once a week are scheduled to allow for one 10-minute break.

Fall 2012 Extension courses begin September 4.

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 $30 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 apply for readmission by completing a readmit form. Students admitted to a program 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 and tuition fee to your instructor or an extension services department representative on the first day of the class, or submit to the extension services department, JDC 201, if enrolling only in extension courses.
