Why transfer to Lake Forest? 

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

  • Excellent location—our beautiful 107-acre campus is 30 miles north of Chicago  and within walking distance of the Metra train to the city and the beach.

  • 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.

  • Exceptional ethnic, socioeconomic, and geographic diversity—1,550 students from nearly every state and 80 countries—more than 40 languages spoken on campus.

  • Medical and law school acceptance rates are significantly above the national norm.

Lake Forest College is closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our campus community and visitors. As a result, we will be unable to host visitors on campus until further notice. We are excited, however, to offer virtual campus tours and virtual visits tailored to your interests. We will consistently monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available.
