Access Summer

Summer Programs at Lake Forest College


Like other schools across the country, Lake Forest College has moved all of our courses online for the remainder of our Spring term due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the rapidly evolving situation, at this time it is impossible to predict whether conditions will allow in-person courses for our May term. However, we will be working with instructors of the courses to determine which of them could be offered online this summer. We hope to begin sharing that course list by early April.


Our summer classes let you catch up on a college credit, get ahead of the game, supercharge your writing, learn a second (or third, or fourth!) language, earn a valuable transfer credit, or fulfill that promise you once made to yourself to be a lifelong learner.
