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

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 free and easy to apply, and you’re guaranteed a decision within two weeks. You can also schedule an on-site admission visit to receive a decision the same day. 

We also offer generous financial aid packages, and you can receive up to $30,000 in scholarships. Our Forester Flagship Program provides up to 100% of the College’s tuition covered in grants and scholarships to qualified in-state transfers.

Admissions Events

I transferred to Lake Forest College because of the immediate connections I made with the campus community. While considering where to transfer, I distinctly recall having several great conversations with Lake Forest admissions staff, faculty, and current transfer students, and that personalized attention made my decision all that much easier.
