Options / Community Education

The Options Program at Chicago State University meets the educational, vocational, self-developmental, enrichment, and recreational needs of community residents through non-credit programming. This is accomplished by providing short-term courses of study, workshops, seminars, high school and college readiness courses, and trips or tours in which residents of all ages can participate.

Continuing Education Swim Program

Please bear with us. We apologize for the delays in the swim program.

The instructional pool is still down. A new heater has been ordered. We do not anticipate starting swim classes until after the holidays. Once the classes resume, we will add three additional days to your schedule. An added bonus is a 40% discount on the spring swim classes.

Again we are sorry for any inconvenience the disruption has caused you. We are asking the engineers to do a thorough inspection of the aquatic center before we continue.
