Student Details and Guidelines

Chicago State University allows visiting, non-degree seeking summer students who are enrolled at another college or university to enroll in courses via the university’s on-line registration system, CSU X-press.

Individuals without a bachelor's degree who can prove good academic standing (C average) at the last regionally accredited college or university may attend CSU as an undergraduate at large (Non-degree seeking).

Applicants must submit ONE of the following documents with the application

  • College/university Transcript
  • Letter of good standing from the registrar or dean of the applicant's school
  • Recent grade statement indicating the cumulative grade point average.

Some professional programs (such as social work, health sciences and education) have restricted course admissions, which will prevent on-line registration. Non-degree seeking, summer only students can register for all other courses on-line. If a student is interested in taking a course in a restricted program, they must contact that department. For departmental office telephone numbers, call the Chicago State University voice activated directory assistance 773-995-3600.
