by Public Relations and Marketing | Published Jul 17, 2018

The College of Lake County and National Louis University recently signed a Guaranteed Transfer Admission agreement. CLC students who transfer to NLU to complete a bachelor’s degree will be guaranteed acceptance while completing the requirements in their particular degree.

Karen Hlavin, vice president for student development, said that NLU is a great addition to CLC’s Guaranteed Transfer Admission program due to its academic reputation, breadth of degree programs and close proximity. “Through this partnership, we’re offering our students yet another high-quality option in the Chicago area,” Hlavin said. “We can now provide qualified students an opportunity to plan their transfer to NLU several semesters in advance and take advantage of advising from both institutions.”

Hanna Wielgat-Blin, NLU’s director of articulation, said, “We’re excited to have established this agreement, as it helps provide a clearer academic transition for CLC transfer students continuing their studies at NLU. At our university, students can earn bachelor’s degrees in many diverse fields via online courses or at six Chicago-area locations, including the University Center of Lake County in Grayslake, across the street from CLC’s Grayslake Campus.”
