Quick Guide for Summer Students

This guide is intended to provide new students with all of the information they need to get started at Lake Forest College. 

Academics

my.lakeforest

my.lakeforest is the college’s intranet. You will use it to register for classes, check grades, and many other things. Click here to view a guide to my.lakeforest. 

Webmail

Your professor will use your Lake Forest College email account for most of the course communication. Please check this email at least twice per day. The easiest way to access this is via Webmail. You can also find a link to Webmail in the “Quicklinks” pull-down menu on the College website.

Moodle

Moodle is a tool that you will use to communicate with your professors.

Billing

Your student account statement is available via my.lakeforest under Students—My Account—Billing Statement. You can pay online at lakeforest.afford.com. For questions concerning your bill, please contact Student Accounts at 847-735-5032 or studentaccounts@lakeforest.edu.

Transferring Credits

At Lake Forest College, credit is earned, recorded, and tallied by course rather than by semester credit hours. For the purposes of definition and transfer of credit, a Lake Forest course is valued at four semester credit hours or six quarter credits.

Transcripts

You will see the grades from your course(s) on your my.courses page of My.Lakeforest. But your home institution will want a formal transcript.  A visiting student who wishes to have the credit transferred to their home institution should go to our Request Transcript portal, which may be accessed here.

 Textbooks and the Bookstore

Textbooks for courses can be found at the campus bookstore site.
