Cost of Attendance

Tuition and fees at Lake Land College are very affordable and among the lowest in the state. Likewise, our textbook rental program also helps students save approximately $1,700 per year!

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.

The budget for 2021-2022 used to estimate cost of attendance based on a full-time (15 credit hours per semester), in-district student during the fall and spring semesters is listed below:

Your actual costs of attendance will vary based on your enrollment level, residency status, living arrangements, transportation costs, and lifestyle. This page is here to provide estimated costs so you can plan ahead and determine how much money you may need to attend Lake Land College.
