Transfer to Lake Forest College

Transfer to one of the top colleges in Chicago and the nation.

Lake Forest College is closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our campus community and visitors. With this in mind, we will not be hosting visitors on campus through April 18. We are accepting visit requests again staring April 20, but cannot guarantee that these will be honored given the rapidly changing circumstances. We are still able to conduct transfer interviews during the week via Skype or over the phone. Please connect with your admission counselor for more details. We will consistently monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available. You can find the most up-to-date information at lakeforest.edu/coronavirus.


Every semester we welcome transfer students from other four-year colleges and universities throughout the country and internationally to our transfer inclusive environment. No matter whether you transfer in during your first year, second year, or the beginning of your junior year, you will be welcomed into a friendly, diverse, and inclusive community. 

It’s easy to transfer your credits and we’ll help you graduate on time. It’s also free and easy to apply, and you’re guaranteed a decision within two weeks. Or schedule an on-site admission visit to receive a decision the same day.

Our Forester Flagship Program provides up to 100% of the College’s tuition covered in grants and scholarships to qualified in-state transfers.
