About the school
The College of Lake County (CLC) is a community college established in 1967 in Grayslake, Illinois. The college serves over 15,000 students in career programs, transfer programs, GED and adult basic education, training for businesses, non-credit and career development.
The University Center of Lake County was built in 2005 as an addition to the Grayslake campus. It is a syndicate of Illinois universities and four-year colleges providing opportunities for residents to finish or add to their education. Though, functionally independent of CLC, its presence of the University Center offers an opportunity for CLC students and other residents to further their education without having to relocate or be commuting a long distance.
Total program cost is about $9,600 for residents and $29,600 for out-of-state residents.
