Cost of Attendance

Tuition and Fees at Lake Land College are very affordable and among the lowest in the state.  Our textbook rental program helps you by saving you approximately $1,700 per year!  Currently, our Tuition and Fees are $115.30 per credit hour.

In addition to tuition and fees, you could have several other indirect costs of attending college such as room and board, transportation, and personal expenses.  These additional expenses are not costs that are paid to Lake Land College and are averages that help us determine the average cost of attendance for our students when awarding financial aid.  You may not have all of these expenses, and the cost associated with each category could vary depending on your circumstances.
