Welcome Spring Admitted Students

Dear Fellow Forester,

We are pleased to welcome you to Lake Forest College, where you are about to embark on a wonderful adventure with us.

Next Steps

1. Submit your $500 enrollment deposit.

2. Submit your campus housing form.

3. Prepare to register for courses during the advising and registration period for new spring students beginning November 17.

The coming months are important in your transition to the College. This website will give you instructions for everything you’ll need to do before joining us in January. Let us know if anything is missing and we’ll add it.

So, what can you do now? There are two initial steps to becoming a Forester: 

  1. Submit your $500 enrollment deposit. Click here to make your deposit on our secure server. Or you can make a check for $500 payable to Lake Forest College to: Lake Forest College, 555 N. Sheridan Road, Lake Forest, IL 60045.
  2. If you plan to live on campus, submit your housing form as soon as you can. Click here for the online housing form. Housing is chosen on a first-come first-served basis; the sooner you get it in the better your chances of getting your preferred housing assignment. 

You can also meet fellow students on the College’s Facebook page, follow the College on Twitter (#FutureForester), order a t-shirt or two to show your Forester Pride, and check your email for updates.  

Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to seeing you when you arrive on campus.
