Transfer students should review the transfer website for their next institution and connect with an advisor in their intended major as early as possible. Ultimately, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure their courses transfer into their intended program and institution.
Lake Land College academic counselors are well versed in the requirements and expectations of transfer institutions needed to help students create a plan to transfer. Counselors consult with university representatives to ensure that the courses students take will transfer into the intended major. Counselors share this information with faculty advisors so that they can pass it along to their advisees.
To learn more about transfer requirements and processes for a specific institution, please contact the counselor who is the assigned contact for that school.
The Transfer Resource Room, located in Luther Student Center, room 437, serves as a central location for students who want to explore their transfer options. The Transfer Resource Room houses a multitude of resources for students, such as admission packets, transfer brochures and program information brochures.
The Transfer Resource Room is also the home of the EIU Service Center at Lake Land College. On days when the EIU Service Center is open on campus, students have the opportunity to meet with Rita Pearson, EIU Transfer Advisor, in a private office in the Resource Room to discuss plans to transfer to Eastern Illinois University.
