Lake Land College is a comprehensive community college offering a broad range of programs. Lake Land offers transfer degrees, allowing students to complete their first two years of college-level coursework at Lake Land before continuing their education at a four-year college or university. Lake Land also offers certificate programs and degrees, which allow students to directly prepare for the workplace.
Lake Land College holds many advantages over four-year universities, including lower costs, smaller class sizes, and a greater degree of flexibility. For students in one of our many transfer programs, Lake Land provides a specialized, low cost alternative to their first two years of academic study.
