Registration is currently open for the summer semester at Wright College, 4300 North Narragansett Avenue, offering the opportunity for Wright students, college and university students home for the summer, and persons seeking educational enrichment to earn extra credits and obtain needed skills. The shortened summer session, beginning June 9, allows students to fill gaps in course requirements that they were unable to achieve during the fall and spring semesters.
Courses are available in 37 departments, including biology, English, and mathematics. Other departments offering courses over the summer are business, environmental technology, computer information systems, and many others. Go to wright.ccc.edu for a complete listing and schedule of classes.
For university students, the summer semester at Wright is an opportunity to complete general education requirements at a lower tuition cost. Wright course credits are generally accepted at such schools as Northwestern University, University of Illinois-Urbana, University of Illinois-Chicago, and many other colleges.
Wright tuition is only $87 per credit hour for Chicago residents. Financial aid is available.
New students interested in starting during the summer semester should register immediately because they must complete one of the free placement exams. No student is ever turned away. The test merely determines placement in appropriate classes for new students.
Returning students can register anytime online at my.ccc.edu or by phone at 312/553-3450. A full summer course schedule is available online at wright.ccc.edu. For information, call the admissions office at 773/481-8200.
