Rend Lake College (RLC), located in Ina, Illinois, on the eastern shore of Rend Lake, has two satellite campuses: Rend Lake College MarketPlace in Mt. Vernon and the Rend Lake College Murphy-Wall Pinckneyville Campus.

Rend Lake College calls itself “a college small enough to get to know you on a personal basis, but large enough to meet your educational needs.”

RLC offers more than 100 programs of study in degree programs and occupational certificates. The junior college has five academic divisions:

  • Allied Health
  • Applied Science and Technology
  • Health and Physical Education
  • Liberal Arts
  • Math, Science and Education


A few examples of degree-programs are Surveying Technology (AAS), Wireless Communications Technology (AAS), Architectural Technology (AAS) and Early Childhood Education (AAS).

Annual enrollment at RLC averages 5000 for full-time, degree-focused students, 4000 part-time students and 4000 non-credit enrollees.

Rend Lake College had been characterized as serving a relatively homogenous rural, small town culture. However, ethnic diversity has expanded at the school, as the college has broadened its study programs and with greater mobility across the country.

The campus has notable facilities: The Jimmy J. Fulks Aquatics Center includes a six-lane, 75’x45’ pool with a ramp for the physically challenged, a therapy pool and a whirlpool. In addition to classes, the pool is available for recreational use and public memberships.

The Applied Science Center is a 22,300 sq. ft. facility that houses a number of programs, including Agricultural Business, Agricultural Production, Agricultural Mechanics, Heavy Equipment and Diesel Technology. The RLC Children’s Center serves the child care needs of students and staff, as well as the educational laboratory needs of the college’s Early Childhood Education program.

The school’s Learning Enhancement Center and its SMARTHINKING Online Tutoring Program are resources available to all RLC students.

The Student Transfer And Retention Support (STARS) Program was created to assist RLC students successfully complete a college degree and transfer to a four-year university.

The college ranked #18 in the CNN Money listing of top community colleges in 2012. The Aspen Institute listed Rend Lake among the top 10% of U.S. community colleges in 2013.
