TAKING CLASSES FOR CREDIT
Do you want to:
- Earn a degree or certificate from Wright College/City Colleges?
- Transfer to a four-year college or university for a bachelor's degree?
- Register for Early College classes?
Successfully completing college classes for credit will help you earn an associate degree and/or a basic or advanced certificate. A degree or certificate may help you increase your skills and job opportunities. In many cases, credit classes from City Colleges of Chicago may also be transferred to a four-year college or university, saving you thousands of dollars toward earning your bachelor's degree. Even if you plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to earn a bachelor's degree, you may still be considered a "degree-seeking student" at City Colleges and earn an associate degree or certificate here before you transfer!
