Access Summer

Information for Current Students

For Access Summer 2019, Lake Forest College students who are behind on credits* may take summer session courses for only $500 each, until they are caught up.

Registration for current students opens on December 10, 2018. Use my.lakeforest to register.

Forester Finish Program

This is a special package for students who are short credits. Please read below to see if you qualify.

The $500 per-course rate is less per-credit than other 2019 summer programs in the Chicago region, plus you benefit from the quality instruction that you’ll never get from an online course.

Our students use this discount to catch up. See the Forester Finish Program page for more details.

* To qualify for these grants, students must meet these requirements

Matriculation Date    Must have fewer than
Fall 2018 8 credits
Fall 2017 16 credits
Fall 2016 24 credits
Fall 2015 32 credits

These credit totals include transfer, AP, and IB credits. 

Forester Finish Program grants do not apply to non-FFP independent studies, internships, or ACM summer courses. The discount does not apply to transfer students.

We Got Your Grant

Don’t qualify for the Forest Finish Program? Don’t worry. You may be eligible for a Lake Forest College Summer Session grant toward the cost of a Summer Session course, independent study, or internship. This grant can significantly discount tuition on a Lake Forest experience equivalent to 4.0 semester hours.

To qualify, students must demonstrate financial need and cannot already be receiving the discounted rate of $500.

The Office of Financial Aid (OFA) does not require a separate summer grant application. The OFA will evaluate grant eligibility for all students enrolled in summer courses with information already on file. We will notify you of your grant no later than one week before the start of each summer term.

Summer tuition is $3,300 per four-credit course or internship. Grants range from $1,300 - $2,300 based on 2018-2019 FAFSA’s need.

 

Get Strong!

Foresters may sign up—each term—for either of these courses:

PHYE-131 Beginning Strength and Conditioning 

This course will be focused on learning the foundations of strength and conditioning with an emphasis on life-long physical fitness.  Students will learn warm-up and stretching routines along with proper exercise technique and different cardiovascular training methods. Successful completion of this course will be based on attendance, and students will receive a requirement satisfied (RS) grade upon fulfillment. 

PHYE-130 Advanced Strength and Conditioning. 

This course will be focused on learning the foundations of strength and conditioning with an emphasis on life-long physical fitness.  Students will learn warm-up and stretching routines along with proper exercise technique and different cardiovascular training methods.

The course fee is only $25, and students signed up for another summer session academic course can take PHYE 130 or 131 for free!
