Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

To prepare Chicagoans to seize career opportunities in the post-COVID recovery, City Colleges of Chicago (CCC) announces Future Ready, offering high-demand, short-term college programs at no cost to qualifying Chicagoans on a first-come, first-served basis this fall. Chicagoans interested in pursuing careers in fields as diverse as: healthcare, technology, transportation, distribution, and logistics, cannabis operations, auto tech, criminal justice and more have never had a more direct route to earn a college credential. Students who are new to City Colleges are eligible, along with those returning after two or more semesters (fall/spring) who left City Colleges in good standing.  Students who previously took adult education (GED/ESL) or continuing education are also able to take part. Undocumented students are included too.  This opportunity is for Chicago residents.  The programs may be offered in-person at one of the seven City Colleges or its satellite sites or online, and may offer college credit, depending on the program selected.  Programs range in length, with some as little as one day in length up to three semesters.  A complete list of the 60+ eligible programs can be found at
