Registration Information


Applicants must be at least 16 years of age and possess a high school diploma or GED equivalent to take PST prefixed courses. Graduate-level courses require completion of an undergraduate degree. A copy of your BA/BS transcript must accompany your registration. Senior high school students may be eligible to take PST prefixed courses with written recommendation of their high school academic advisor and permission of the instructor. Non U.S. citizens, including green card holders, MUST follow the procedures outlined under International Students.
CCS expects members of the University community, including PST registrants, to be honest and professional in all of their dealings with the institution.  CCS adheres to the academic integrity policies for undergraduate students, if the PST course is not cross-listed with either an undergraduate or graduate level course. If the PST course is cross listed, then the undergraduate or graduate level academic integrity policies apply.

For information on tuition and fees, see the section on Financial Information.
