Transfer to Lake Forest

Now offering on-site transfer admission appointments every Wednesday
On-site admission is designed to take the stress out of the application process and waiting for an admission decision. To take advantage of this opportunity, you must submit a transfer application and official college and high school transcripts at least two business days before your scheduled chat. We do not charge an application fee and you can submit your transcripts with the application or have them sent to us separately. Your admission counselor may determine that additional information is needed to make an enrollment decision.
Can't make it? We also offer on-site admission appointments virtually Monday through Friday. Learn more here.
