    Earning your Bachelors Degree After L&C

    Whether you know your major or want to explore different subjects before deciding, Lewis and Clark Community College is an ideal place for transfer students to complete the first two years of any four-year degree.

    Simply by attending L&C as a transfer student, your average savings on tuition and fees for a four-year degree amounts to $19,370. (based on 2020-21 tuition rates at Illinois public colleges and universities). If you factor in the ability to live at home and save on living expenses while attending L&C, the savings compound even more.

    Lewis and Clark makes transferring easy.

    In addition to the Illinois Articulation Initiative, which guarantees general education credit at most Illinois colleges and universities, L&C has a growing number of transfer and 2+2 agreements with many in-state and out-of-state institutions to make sure our students have a smooth transition after their years here. View the current list of agreements.

    For those not wanting to leave town to continue their education, several colleges and universities also offer bachelor's and master's degrees right here on L&C’s campus. Check out our dual admissions offerings.
