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 website: 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 your 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 (RUC, room 200) if enrolling only in extension courses.
