Oakton Fall Registration Begins April 10

(April 9, 2019) Fall semester registration for credit classes opens Thursday, April 10, at Oakton Community College, 1600 E. Golf Road, Des Plaines, and 7701 N. Lincoln Ave., Skokie. Classes begin the week of August 19.

Enrollment for fall classes can begin online at www.oakton.edu/admission. Register in person at Oakton’s campuses 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday. Students with a current application on file may register online at my.oakton.edu.

“Tuition and fees are much lower at Oakton than those at four-year universities and colleges, allowing students to achieve academic success at a fraction of the cost,” Director of Student Recruitment & Outreach Michele Brown says.

Students who attend Oakton spend about a third as much to earn the same credits as those who attend traditional colleges or universities. According to a recent report prepared for the Illinois Community College Board, a 25-year-old Oakton graduate can expect an increase in lifetime earnings of approximately $724,000 more than someone with only a high school diploma. That’s a 56 percent increase over the total lifetime earnings of someone not completing a community college program.
