Earn a certificate or degree tuition free at Lake Land College

July 30, 2014
Lake Land College is offering the opportunity of a lifetime with its Work and Learn program! 

With Work and Learn, the college will provide a complete tuition waiver opportunity to adults who are currently unemployed or underemployed in order for them to earn a career certificate or associate degree.  

Students who are accepted into the Work and Learn program will work 10 hours per week on-campus in a designated position and in turn, receive a full tuition waiver to attend Lake Land full-time. Students enrolled in the program will gain employment knowledge and skills that will help them transition into the workforce while earning a degree or certificate. 

Requirements for the Work and Learn students are as follows.  Students must:
•    reside in the Lake Land College district; 
•    be 24 years of age or older; 
•    have a high school diploma or GED; and
•    earned less than 30 credit hours OR have not taken a college credit class within the past 5 years.  

To apply for this opportunity, applicants must complete the application and submit it to the Student Assistance Specialist in the Counseling Services Department along with the Lake Land College Intent to Enroll form which can be found online at http://www.lakeland.cc.il.us/ss/ar/admissions.  Students will be required to complete the FAFSA prior to beginning the work assignment. 

Students needing assistance applying for this program should contact the Student Assistance Specialist at 217-234-5473, or stop by Counseling or Career Services in the Luther Student Center on campus.
