Participants can be advised once we know their intention to enroll at Lake Forest College. Participants should be able to transfer in the credit and maintain their degree plan. This is a conversation that should happen before enrollment/deposit. 15 semester hours is equivalent to just under 4 course credits (3.75 credits), and advisors will work with students to confirm how they will pick up the ¼ credit during their remaining 7 semesters at the College.
