The College of Lake County welcomes veterans, military service members and their dependents. Our staff and faculty are dedicated to assisting you in transitioning into college and supporting you in meeting your educational goals. At CLC we understand that the transition to student life can be challenging, yet rewarding. With that in mind we have worked very hard to ease this transition for you.

The College of Lake County has a Military Network of Services committee whose members are dedicated to providing you with services and resources that will assist you in adjusting to civilian and campus life. The committee consists of staff and faculty who are interested in your success!
