Dual Credit Testimonials

“The dual credit program is an opportunity that I wish all students could have. During this year alone (2010-2011), 432 Tech Campus students earned 2,145 credits at the College of Lake County. Students have gone on to continue their education in either certificate or degree programs where these credits are applied. Currently, the dual credit program is tuition-free to Tech Campus students, which is a huge benefit to families paying for post-secondary education. Students are able to earn 3 to 21 credits depending on their program of study. I cannot think of a better way for students to get such a positive ‘jump start’ to their future! Thank you, CLC, for this opportunity.”

“Zion-Benton High School Township, District 126 enjoys a tremendous partnership with the College of Lake County. Our New Tech High @ Zion-Benton East campus has been fortunate to offer dual credit coursework through CLC to its junior and senior students, allowing our students to position themselves advantageously for opportunities in and beyond high school. A great number of our students select CLC as their post secondary college of choice, and the opportunity to already have a relationship cemented with CLC through high school dual credit opportunities provides our students a seamless transition to higher education. We are convinced that our partnership with CLC has and will continue to change the lives of many of our students, particularly those who are the first in their family to attend college.”
