How to Apply

Congratulations! You're taking the first step on a very exciting and rewarding part of your academic experience! The first step is to choose a program. Your Study Away Coordinator can help you search for a program that fits your major and budget, apply for the Study Away program, complete the application to your program, and connect you with resources for advising, scholarships and financial aid.

Application Deadlines:

Working With Advisors

Your first point of contact should be your academic advisor. It's important to bring up the idea of study away as early as you can in your time at LC State, as this will help you and your advisor plan ahead and structure your course plans.

Another important advisor will be your financial aid advisor. Understanding your financial options and limitations is essential, as money is the barrier most often cited by students who don't follow through on their plans to study away. The Financial Aid Associate Director, Travis Osburn, is a great resource.

Finally, the Study Away Coordinator, will be your advisor throughout the study away process. The Coordinator assists with program selection, all applications and pre-departure paperwork, concerns and issues encountered while studying away and returnee issues and paperwork.
