College of Lake County
Lake Forest College and the College of Lake County enjoy a strong educational partnership. Each semester we enroll some of the best and brightest transfer students from CLC.
CLC students in the sciences, arts and humanities, and business have a smooth path to a bachelor of arts degree at Lake Forest College, thanks to a special partnership between the two institutions, including the CLC Pathway Scholarships and a Guaranteed Admission Agreement.
- Guaranteed Admission Program
- Pathways for Sciences, Business, and Humanities
- CLC Scholar Full-Tuition Scholarship
Up to $25,000 in Scholarships
- Guaranteed Internship (Humanities majors)
|AP Credit for CLC Students|
Students who have successfully completed Advanced Placement courses and the appropriate examinations provided by the College Entrance Examination Board may apply for college credit for this work.
As part of recognizing the Associate in Arts (AA) degree credential, we will accept scores of “3” on Advanced Placement (AP) exams from students whose community colleges have applied such credit towards the hours needed for their AA.
Scores of 3, 4, or 5 on the examinations, may entitle students to at least one course credit. Scores of 1 or 2 are not granted credit. A score of 4 or better on both the microeconomics and macroeconomics exams is required for one course credit in economics.
Each department determines the specific amount of credit to be awarded. Credit will not be granted for both Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate program examinations in the same department.
A Guaranteed Transfer Admission Agreement provides CLC students seamless transfer to earn their bachelor’s degree at Lake Forest College. CLC students will benefit from personalized academic planning from both institutions early in their college career.
- Please submit the Guaranteed Admission Participation Form if you intend to participate in this program.
