On-Campus Visits

Request an on-campus visit or accelerated admissions appointment

Register for our Transfer Visit Day!

A campus visit could include:
• campus tour
• accelerated admission appointment*

*Accelerated 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 academic letter of recommendation and 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.

Admitted Student Days

Save your spot at one of our Admitted Student Days

We are excited to welcome our prospective first-year and transfer students and their families to campus for our Future Forester Days. This experience gives a great overview of the Lake Forest College experience with a presentation on the admissions and financial aid processes, a tour of campus led by one of our current student ambassadors, and the opportunity to connect with various departments on campus to learn more about their services and role in the student experience.

Self-Guided Tour

There’s no right or wrong way to see our campus. It’s beautiful any time of the year, and our small size makes it easy for students to get around. We’ve put together a short self-guided walking tour with some notable locations for you to experience campus when it’s convenient for you.
