Many Lisle college students, both teenagers and adults, take advantage of the affordable tuition and wide range of classes scheduled at the College of DuPage, a community college based at a 273-acre campus in nearby Glen Ellyn. The college offers associate degrees in business, humanities, horticulture, natural sciences, social/behavioral sciences and occupational and vocational education.
After completing their course requirements at the College of DuPage, students are fully trained in a trade or profession or prepared to transfer as juniors to a four-year college or university.
The college also staffs the College of DuPage Regional Center in Naperville. Located on Rickert Drive near Plainfield/Naperville Road and 75th Street, the center provides a range of classes, comfortable classrooms, computer labs and a Center for Independent Learning. The center also offers an Adult Fast Track program.
When they transfer, Lisle students still won’t need to travel far for a four-year degree. Lisle residents are served by Benedictine University (Lisle), National Louis University (Lisle), North Central College (Naperville), Wheaton College (Wheaton), Northern Illinois University (DeKalb) and Robert Morris College (Aurora). Only a train ride away, Chicago colleges and universities (such as DePaul University, Loyola University, University of Chicago, University of Illinois Chicago, Columbia College and the Illinois Institute of Technology) supply superior academic experiences for the college-bound.
