  • Save Money on Your Bachelor’s Degree with L&C

    Students who attend Lewis and Clark for two years before transferring to a four-year institution can save thousands of dollars on their bachelor’s degree.

    Did you know at least 61 percent of students graduating with their bachelor’s degree do so with student loan debt? In Illinois, the average amount of that debt is $29,271, slightly lower than the nationwide average of $30,100 per borrower.

    Community college aims to make education more affordable and accessible to career and transfer-bound students throughout the district by cutting that debt significantly.

    Simply by attending L&C as a transfer student, your average savings on tuition and fees for a four-year degree amounts to $17,598. If you factor in the ability to live at home and save on living expenses while attending school, the savings compound even more.
