Though classes are starting, you can still enroll. You can register for a class up to midnight of the day of its first meeting.
Missed the start of fall classes? Registration is a "go" with our late-starting class options.
With the start of classes fast approaching, our staff can help you navigate the enrollment process more easily.
Construction for several exciting new additions is underway at the Grayslake Campus. The Grayslake Main Lobby is closed due to construction, but alternate routes are marked around closed-off areas. Everyone will be using the Connecting Link at the Main entrance to get to each side of campus, so halls may be crowded, especially between classes. The temporary corridors are narrow, so please keep to the right!
Several departments have moved to the E Building on the north side of campus: Financial Aid; the Counseling, Advising and Transfer Center and Enrollment Services (Admissions, Records, Financial Aid and Center for International Education). Please look for the color-coded signs and arrows and pick up a copy of the Map and Arrow Guide (PDF) to help find your classes.
Thank you for your patience as we improve our facilities!
Fall Semester begins Aug. 24, but you may register up to the first day a class meets. Fall late-starting classes are also available.
