The College of Lake County provides a wide range of learning opportunities to meet the various educational needs of students from diverse educational backgrounds. The college welcomes all individuals who can benefit from its courses and programs of study. An individual will be admitted to the college by completing and submitting the Application for Admission form. The college serves those who are high school graduates, others 18 years of age or older, and individuals less than 18 years of age who meet established criteria.
Admission to the college, however, does not ensure entrance into all programs of study or courses. Specific programs may have admission criteria which may include, but are not limited to, age, evidence of language and mathematics skills, and level of education. Students taking college level courses must demonstrate college level competency in language and mathematics. In addition, students are required to complete specified prerequisites prior to enrollment in certain courses.
The college reserves the right to limit enrollment because of space or budget restrictions, to establish selective admission requirements, and to give preference to residents of Community College District 532.
Prerequisites are other courses, knowledge, skills, or permission that must be obtained before a student enrolls in a course. Students can meet basic skills prerequisites through demonstration of English language proficiency and/or math proficiency. In addition, students may need to meet other course prerequisites that have been established for specific courses.
Course prerequisites which have been established for individual courses are based on the student having received knowledge and skills through previous coursework.
Students who have not met a course prerequisite but believe they possess equivalent knowledge or skills through prior coursework or experience should contact the Academic Divisional Office.
