MCLEANSBORO, Ill. (April 17, 2019) — Nearly half of Hamilton County Senior High's Class of 2019 enrolled at Rend Lake College today during one of RLC's College Signing events. Many of these students have already taken advantage of The Lake's free Dual Credit program, saving themselves and their families more than $100,000 in college costs. By choosing to continue their education in one of more than 100 degree or certificate programs at RLC, these students will save around $18,000 a year in tuition and fees — when compared to the average cost of a public university.
