Business Office

With a spirit that values the individual, the Offices of Business Affairs and Financial Aid at Lake Forest College serve the economic needs of the College Community.  We do so by anticipating concerns, providing timely information, and seeking innovative solutions.  We invite, and encourage, those involved to become partners with us in the process.  We take pride in achieving these goals courteously, fairly, and efficiently.

Whether you need to pay your tuition bill, get quarters for laundry, or cash a check from your on-campus job, our friendly staff can help.  

In fact, we do so many diverse things in the Business Office, that the most difficult part is simply getting you to the correct person.  Check out the drop down menu on the left - the main responsibilities of each area and the staff person are listed near the top of each page.

Here’s a listing of the most frequently needed phone numbers:
