3 Begin your bachelor s degree at the College of Lake County CLC offers the same general education core courses taken in the first two years of a bachelor s degree program at a four-year college or university. Though CLC s credits generally transfer easily, colleges and universities have different requirements for transfer students, and you should plan your transfer early to make the process as smooth as possible. CLC counselors can assist you in identifying transfer options, determining the required courses and in planning your semester-bysemester course work to fulfill your transfer school s requirements. In addition, we offer many transfer guides, transfer resources and transfer events where you can meet with college representatives. For more information, visit Fall Semester classes start August 24. For information on getting started at CLC, visit To help facilitate the transfer of credits, CLC participates in the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI).

4 Your savings start at CLC On average, combining two years at CLC with two years at a four-year college or university can save about $18,000 on tuition and fees at a public university and nearly $50,000 at a private institution. Strong transfer programs Data from Illinois public universities show that CLC students who transfer generally do as well or better than students who start their bachelor s degree at the transfer institution. A good place to decide on a major Did you know that about 80 percent of entering college freshmen are undecided about a major? Or that half of college students change their majors at least once before earning a degree? CLC is an excellent place to explore majors, not just because of our cost-friendly tuition but because we offer so many transfer majors (52). Learn more about our transfer majors at
