Community listener's program starts Jan. 17

by Tara Livesay

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- The Community Listener's Permit Program is a special non-credit program that offers an opportunity to participate in Southern Illinois University Carbondale credit courses in a non-stressful manner, without examinations or grades.

Anyone who is not currently enrolled for credit in any university-level course can participate for $25 per class.

This program will run Jan. 17 through May 5. With the instructor's consent, students may participate in most SIUC credit courses and have access to the SIUC University Career Center. Students also will receive a Morris Library courtesy card.

This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about interesting subjects while not taking examinations or paying the full tuition. For more information contact the Division of Continuing Education at 618/536-7751 or visit the Web site at www.dce.siu.edu.
