Lake Land College class registration begins online during coronavirus pandemic campus closure

MATTOON — Lake Land College's 2020 summer and fall registration is scheduled to open on Wednesday, March 25 as planned as the school moves forward in a virtual environment while its campus is closed as a precaution during the coronavirus pandemic.

Lake Land reported that for the first time in its history, registration will be open to all students who are cleared to register versus a tiered approach in which sophomores were given priority on the first day of registration.

“We want to open registration to all who have been proactive and received clearance, as well as readmit any new non-degree seeking students who are ready to register,” said Admission Services Dean Jon Van Dyke in a press release. “We know our current students have been transitioning to a new online environment this week, and we want to be as supportive and helpful as possible."

Current students can login to the Laker Hub and view their Advisement Information page for important information on the advisement process. In the virtual environment, students can connect with their advisors through Laker Mail or via phone. Current degree-seeking students must receive clearance before registering.
