Get more out from your scholarship with Lake Land College

It’s that time of year when a lot of community organizations are announcing scholarship winners for the upcoming 2013-2014 academic school year. That means it’s also time to really evaluate how to spend your scholarship money to ensure you get the most out of your hard earned cash. 

At Lake Land College, tuition for an entire academic year is $3,234, nearly one-fourth of the cost of four-year universities in Illinois. 

Here’s how to figure your tuition cost at Lake Land College: 

One Credit Hour = $107.80

One class is generally three credit hours: 3 x $107.80 = $323.40

A full load of classes per semester, approximately five, three-hour classes, or 15 hours total: 15 x $107.80 = $1,617.

Multiply this by two semesters, which makes up an entire academic year, totaling $3,234. 

Does this number seem unreachable? With a total tuition cost of $3,234 the average student, working a part-time job that pays $8.50 an hour can pay for college by working only 4.5 hours a day for 90 days. Or think of it as working half a day for three months, a great way to spend your summer break. 

Lake Land is also one of the few institutions that offers a textbook rental system, which saves most students about $1,200 a year on textbooks.

The Lake Land College Foundation also provides scholarships to qualifying students and it’s not too late to submit your application to the Foundation. For more information on completing your scholarship application, visit: http://lakeland.cc.il.us/dv/fd/scholarships.cfm. 

Before applying for a scholarship through the Foundation, students are strongly encouraged to complete a Free Application for Federal/Student Aid (FAFSA). For help on this process, contact the office of Financial Aid for the FAFSA packet at financialaid@lakelandcollege.edu or (217) 234-5231.
