Academic departments organize groups of LCSC students to experience international culture while earning college credit. These programs may originate at LCSC or other institutions officially recognized by LCSC. Student participation in these programs is at the discretion of the faculty/department offering the program and any credit will be offered through LCSC by that department for the appropriate course(s). Students may be eligible for financial aid; questions should be directed to the Financial Aid Office after consulting with the Study Away Coordinator. Students pay any required tuition and fees to LCSC, plus any additional fees required to participate in the program.
