Academic Calendar

  • The academic calendar of Lake Forest College is based on two 15-week semesters, from late August through mid-December and from mid-January to early May. Students normally take four course credits per semester (the equivalent of 16 semester hours). All courses run for 15 weeks, with the exception of the courses associated with the Lake Forest College Program in Greece and Border Studies.

    Two summer sessions offer a number of courses, the great majority being taught by regular members of the College’s faculty. The first session, three weeks in length, runs from mid-May to early June, in which a student may enroll in a single course. The seven-week session extends from mid-June to late July, during which a student may enroll in a maximum of two courses.
