by Public Relations and Marketing | Published Jun 02, 2021

Hundreds of summer classes begin June 7 at College of Lake County (CLC) and run through July 30. Students can enroll in a mixture of courses, including one-third in-person, one-third virtual and one-third hybrid formats. Safety precautions aligning with state and county healthcare guidelines are in place to keep everyone safe on campus.

There’s still time to register for classes. CLC is open additional hours on Saturday, June 5 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to help students enroll in summer classes.

Changing lives.Summer is a great time to get ahead or catch up on credits for your degree. Many of our classes transfer to other colleges and universities and cost a fraction of the price. Whether it’s an online anytime course where students learn at their own pace virtually or in the classroom at the Grayslake, Lakeshore or Southlake campus, there’s still time to enjoy your summer break and earn college credits.

New students needing to complete a math, English or English Language Instruction (ELI) course leading to college-level classes are eligible to participate in Lancer Summer Start for free. The program pays for tuition, fees, and required textbooks for one pre-college math, English or ELI course and CLC’s college success seminar, CLC 120.

“As we continue to navigate the pandemic this semester, CLC is providing a range of remote and on-campus services and learning experiences to maintain health and safety and be responsive to our students’ preferences,” said CLC President Dr. Lori Suddick. “Our commitment to supporting every student to achieve their educational goals remains our greatest priority.”

Before coming to campus, students must conduct a daily personal health and wellness check. If they have two or more COVID-19 symptoms, they should stay home. Regardless of individual vaccination status, while on campus, all students must wear face masks covering their mouth and nose indoors and outdoors when within six feet of others. Students should also maintain six feet of physical distancing whenever possible and washing hands frequently. Campus spaces are reconfigured to help individuals maintain six feet physical distancing in classrooms and campus spaces. Class sizes are limited, and class start and end times are staggered to minimize hallway traffic.
