Registration Open for Summer, Fall 2014 Terms at City Colleges of Chicago

4/10/2014 12:00 PM

Now is the time to register for both the Summer and Fall 2014 semesters at City Colleges of Chicago.  City Colleges of Chicago offers a wide-range of quality, affordable educational options from certificate and associate degree programs to English as a Second Language and GED high school equivalency instruction. 

New students can apply to City Colleges by visiting the admissions page today and begin registering for classes on April 21.  Schedules for Summer and Fall 2014 courses at all seven City Colleges campuses can be found here.  

Among the many options, students can enroll in the City Colleges’ College to Careers programs, which prepare students for the more than 500,000 jobs coming to the Chicago region in fast-growing fields, including: health sciences, business, advanced manufacturing, culinary/hospitality, information technology, and transportation/distribution/logistics.  

Attending a community college can save students thousands of dollars towards a four-year degree – and now a tool is available that helps parents and students easily estimate the tuition cost savings. The City Colleges of Chicago’s new Tuition Calculator, available online at, offers parents and students the ability to compare the cost of attending a four-year college for the full four years with the cost of attending City Colleges for two years, then completing their degree at one of more than 2,600 four-year colleges across the country.   

The average cost of a two-year associate degree at City Colleges of Chicago is $6,200, although specific programs may vary.   Chicago-area students who spend their first two years at City Colleges can save an average of $10,018 on the cost of a bachelor’s degree at a public Illinois university and an average of $37,216 on the cost of a bachelor’s degree from an Illinois private university.  

Many City Colleges courses are transferable to four year colleges. In fact, 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.   

City Colleges of Chicago offers programs to meet the needs of all students, including:  
  • Associate of arts (A.A.) and associate of science (A.S.) degrees that transfer to four-year colleges and universities. 
  • Associate of applied science degrees (A.A.S.) and certificates that prepare students to immediately enter the workforce in high-demand careers. 
  • ​Degree programs range from nursing to culinary arts, from biology to computer information systems.
