LSC Study Abroad
What Is Study Abroad?
Study abroad is a program that allows students to take one or more classes in a country other than the United States for academic credit.
Study abroad offers valuable opportunities to visit another country, experience another culture firsthand, build your cross-cultural skills, enhance your resume, immerse yourself in another language, challenge yourself in new ways, and make new friends.
Join a Study Abroad Program
To get started in the process of participating on a study abroad program:
- Contact the professor in charge of the program of interest for information on space availability, cost, and program application process. Contact information can be found on the programs offered page.
- Complete the program application, pay any application deposits, and fulfill any other program requirements. Each program may have a different application and requirements. If the program does not have their own application, use the general Study Abroad Student Program Application.
- Apply for scholarships, if qualified. Note: Receiving a scholarship is not required to join a study abroad program as long as the student is able to pay the appropriate costs.
- Pay any remaining deposits or fees toward the program.
- Request the free Guide to Study Abroad to prepare for your program.
- Have more questions? Please see the FAQ's and the Study Abroad Student Checklist for more information.
