Summer 2014 Session

Powerful Savings on College Costs

If you're like most students, your money never seems to go far enough. That's why it's so important to stretch your dollars. Attending CLC's Summer Session is a great way to do that.

Think about it this way

CLC offers the same general education courses as the school you attend during the regular school year. But CLC's current in-district tuition and fees are just $112 a credit hour—far less than the state public university average of $432.

By attending CLC's Intersession and Summer Session this year and next, you can earn up to18 credits—more than a whole semester. That's potentially $5,600 more in your pocket, for a car, clothes, savings, whatever.*

Here's a sample plan for how you can earn up to 18 credits and save:

Summer 2014

Intersession runs May 20-June 6;
Summer Session, June 9-August 2.

English Composition

Summer 2015

Intersession runs May 19-June 5; 
Summer Session, June 8-August 1.


CLC Cost Savings: $5,643

*Tuition and fee savings based on the difference between 18 credit hours at an Illinois public university and 18 hours at CLC. The university tuition and fee rate is based on the average for 12 universities for 2014; the CLC rate is based on the current in-district rate and the proposed rate for the 2014-15 academic year.

Other Benefits of Attending CLC

It's not just about the money. Attending CLC is also about getting a very good education. Consider these benefits:

Enjoy small classes. Forget about large lecture halls for the summer. CLC classes are small—the average class size is just 21 students, and instructors are regularly available in their offices as well as class to help you.

Make progress on your “gen ed” requirements. We offer the same general education courses as the college you're attending. And we offer a lot of them—biology, chemistry, calculus, psychology, sociology, history?you get the idea.

Take demanding courses with our experienced, caring instructors. A lot of students enjoy taking courses like calculus and chemistry at CLC. You'll have instructors—not graduate students—and your classes will be small.

Fit school into your summer. Day, evening, weekend or online, at our Grayslake, Vernon Hills or Waukegan locations, our courses are offered to give students options so they can fit work, fun and school into their summer plans. You'll even have a choice of course lengths—three, six, seven and eight week options.

Step 1 - Apply

If you have never enrolled at CLC before

If you have never attended the college before, apply using the Student Admission Form.

If you have applied or enrolled at CLC previously

You do not need to re-submit a Student Information Form. 

Determine if your student record is still active.

Step 2 - myLogin

If you are new to CLC

Learn Your CLC Student ID and Create a Login

When your application has been processed (usually within two working days), you will receive your 7-digit CLC ID number in the mail. It can take up to 10 business days for your letter to arrive. As a new student, you may look up your student ID online.

Once you have your ID number, follow the steps to create myLogin.


If you have previously enrolled at CLC

You received a CLC ID when you originally applied. Use your myLogin username and password you created previously to login to myCLC and access the student systems.

Forgot your username or password?

If you know your student ID or username, you can reset your password online through the account management tool.

If you're unable to reset your password, contact the ITS Service Desk and choose option #3 to speak with a Student Service Desk representative.

Step 3 - Courses

Choose Your Courses

Search the courses we offer. Though CLC courses transfer easily, it is a good idea to check out your planned schedule with the college or university you will attend in the fall to ensure that the courses you have selected meet your institution’s requirements.

Additional information about transferring credits between Illinois colleges and universities is available at iTransfer.

Step 4 - Prerequisites

Special Option for Meeting Prerequisites

CLC is offering a special offer this summer for students like you who attend other colleges or universities during the academic year. If you plan to attend CLC for the summer-only, you can participate in a pilot program allowing you to enroll in select courses before sending a transcript to document that you meet prerequisites. You may register for any of our expedited registration courses as soon as you receive your CLC ID number. You must, however, send an unofficial transcript to the Admissions office at before your class begins.

To Enroll in Other Classes

If you wish to enroll in classes that are not on the “expedited enrollment” list, follow these steps:

Step 5 - Register

Register for Classes

Students should go to the myCLC student portal. After entering your login, select the “Student Center” option to be taken to the student registration system. For more information, see How to Register.

If you need login help, contact the ITS Service Desk which is available 24 hours.

Step 6 - Pay

Pay Tuition and Fees

CLC enforces tuition payment deadlines, so it is important to make payment arrangements by your tuition due date. You must pay in full or set up an installment payment plan. If you are a financial aid student, you must set up a “deferred” payment plan, which only goes into effect if your aid does not cover your full tuition and fee obligation. 

For more information about tuition payment, call (847) 543-2085. For information about financial aid, call (847) 543-2062.
