Why transfer to Lake Forest? 

  • Easy credit transfer - we help you get the major you want

  • Personal attention with access to outstanding faculty in small class settings—professors will know you by name.

  • Every transfer student is assigned a career advisor and academic advisor once you arrive on campus—sometimes before.

  • Abundant internship opportunities for all majors.

  • Conduct research alongside professors—many of our students become co-authors on published research papers—opportunities not usually available at larger institutions.
