Parents & Families
Your child’s education is of paramount importance to you. Rend Lake College offers the high quality instruction you demand at a fraction of the cost of four-year universities. Your child can choose from more than 100 degree and certificate programs, whether the goal is to transfer to a university or to directly enter the workforce.
Thousands of students receive financial aid in some form each year, from grants to scholarships to loans, making the college experience more affordable. Taking your first two years at RLC usually costs about one quarter of what those same two years would cost at a four-year university. In addition, our Textbook Rental program can save you hundreds of dollars.
