CHICAGO — Registration for Summer and Fall 2013 terms is now open at all seven of the City Colleges of Chicago.
A simple $60 tuition down payment locks in student class schedules for Summer and Fall if students register no later than June 5th. The regular summer session is from June 5th to July 27th. Fall semester runs from August 26th to December 14th. Registration ends the day classes start.
Class schedules for all seven colleges are available here. Online course schedules are available here.
City Colleges’ College to Careers programs prepares students to hit the ground running in high-demand careers in fast-growing fields, including: health sciences, business, advanced manufacturing, transportation/distribution/logistics, culinary/hospitality, and information technology.
Affordable payment plans allow both new and existing students more time to pay for courses. Summer term students have the option of paying for classes over the months of July and August. Throughout the registration process, financial aid officers are available to help work out payment plans and identify grants and other payment options.
For the first time, registration is available for Weekend College, a pilot program launching in the Fall 2013. Open to any college-ready student with no prior college credits, Weekend College allows students to earn an associate of arts degree in five semesters while taking classes at Kennedy-King College on Friday evenings and Saturdays as part of an accelerated, full-time course load pathway. More details are here.
College students returning to the Chicago area for summer break can take prerequisites and general education classes at City Colleges for a fraction of the cost of similar courses at four-year institutions. Courses labeled “IAI” in the City Colleges academic catalog have been approved by the Illinois Articulation Initiative and will transfer to the more than 100 Illinois colleges and universities participating in IAI. Students who complete the first two years of college at one of the seven City Colleges can save up to $40,000 versus comparable coursework elsewhere.

- Associate of arts (A.A.) and associate of science (A.S.) degrees that transfer to four-year colleges and universities.
