Options / Community Education

The Options Program at Chicago State University meets the educational, vocational, self-developmental, enrichment, and recreational needs of community residents through non-credit programming. This is accomplished by providing short-term courses of study, workshops, seminars, high school and college readiness courses, and trips or tours in which residents of all ages can participate.
