Policies & Procedures

Policy Recommended Statement

Religious Observance

The College of Lake County accommodates individual students' religious observances in regard to admissions, class attendance, scheduling of examinations, and work. To request accommodation, students who expect to miss classes, examination, or other assignments as a consequence of their religious observance should provide me advance notice of the date or dates they will be absent.

Student Rights and Responsibilities Policy (SRRP)

The Student Rights and Responsibilities Policy (SRRP) and associated procedures describe students rights and responsibilities, as well as examples of misconduct inconsistent with the academic environment at CLC. For more information, refer to Student Rights and Responsibilities Procedures (PDF).

Student Records/FERPA

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) gives students certain rights with respect to their education records. Please see the CLC catalog for more details, or learn more about FERPA.

Disclosure of Classroom Recordings

When appropriate, accommodations may allow for a student to record or capture classroom instruction and discussion. Students who qualify for such accommodations are required to abide by the terms and conditions of the College regarding the appropriate use of such services and/or devices. This means that, pursuant to 720 ILCS 5/14-2(2014), all students are hereby notified that all course content may be recorded without further announcement and without individual consent.

Withdrawing from Class

You are responsible for dropping or withdrawing from classes you do not intend to complete. Grades of W will only be assigned to students who withdraw themselves. Tuition and fee refunds will be issued to eligible students based upon the effective date of withdrawal, which is recorded in the system at the time the student drops the class.

Instructors are required to administratively withdraw students who never attended or stopped attending class. All administratively withdrawn courses will remain on your academic record and are not eligible for a refund. Grades will be assigned based on dates of attendance:

WN – You never attended class: no impact on GPA

WS – You stopped attending class: no impact on GPA

FW – You stopped attending class after the official withdraw deadline and your instructor deems you failing: equivalent of F grade for GPA.

Last day to drop with refund and class removed from your record is (insert date from grade roster).

Last date to withdraw with grade of W is (insert date from grade roster).

In order to withdraw and receive a grade of W after the deadline, you must request withdrawal from your instructor; requests must be made in writing and additional approvals may be required. You must have a passing grade at the time the withdrawal request is made. Once approved, you will be withdrawn from class. 

Title IX

The College of Lake County seeks to provide an environment that is free of bias, discrimination, and harassment. If you have been the victim of sexual harassment/misconduct/assault, we encourage you to report this. If you report this to a faculty member, they must notify our college's Title IX coordinator about the basic facts of the incident. For more information about your options at CLC, refer to Title IX Procedures (PDF). You can also contact Kristin Jones, Title IX and Compliance Coordinator at or by calling (847) 543-2464.


The College of Lake County is committed to providing an educational and workplace environment free from harassment and discrimination and accordingly will not tolerate discrimination or harassment against any person because of race, color, age, sex, national origin, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, military or veteran status, genetic information, ancestry, citizenship, parental status, pregnancy, domestic violence, economic status or any other status protected by law. This Policy applies to all College employees, students, visitors, volunteers, independent contractors, elected officials, and third-parties in connection with any College program or activity, whether on or off campus. Any student who believes they have been subject to unlawful discrimination or harassment is encouraged to immediately contact the Title IX Coordinator or Student Conduct Officer.

Safe Zone

As a means of increasing CLC’s commitment to open access and educational opportunity, CLC has actively participated in the national Safe Zone program since the fall semester of 2003. The national program represents an effort to address homophobia, heterosexism, and transphobia in schools and is intended to provide support for LGBTQ+ students, faculty, and staff. The LGBTQ+ Resource Center facilitated program tangibly identifies safe allies for LGBTQ+ people in an effort to increase students’ academic success and retention. I hereby declare myself as such an ally, and this class as a Safe Zone.

It is CLC policy for students to use whatever bathroom they wish to use on campus. This policy is supported by the gender inclusive signs in front of every bathroom. There is also a single unit, gender neutral bathroom stall in the C-wing on the first floor (C160A).

If you wish to change your name on Canvas to your chosen name, please contact Dr. Gabe Lara, Dean of Student Life, at or by calling (847) 543-2287.
