Because of COVID-19 public health concerns, all summer courses will be taught remotely.
We offer three summer sessions in May, June, and July. Classes meet four days per week over four weeks.
Small Classes, High Impact
Lake Forest College’s Summer Session 2020 offers our top faculty instructors in courses that will excite and challenge you.
What You Want, When You Want It
Lake Forest College’s small class size means you are never a number or a cell in a spreadsheet. Classes have three hours a day set aside for synchronous work, four days a week, either in the mornings or in the afternoons, leaving time to read and study, complete homework, and make the most of your summer.
Prerequisites? Don’t worry. Most of our Summer Session classes do not have prerequisites. All courses are open to both Lake Forest College students and other visitors. Check out the 2020 calendar.
- May Term: May 12–June 5, 2020
- June Term: June 8–July 2, 2020
- July Term: July 6–July 30, 2020
