Important Notes:

LMU students may study on programs that are not administered directly by our institution.  This study abroad program is an example of an approved Non-LMU program.  If a student chooses to study abroad on one of the approved Non-LMU programs, they must follow the below administrative procedure.
  • Schedule an advising appointment with the Study Abroad Coordinator who advises for Non-LMU programs
  • Complete a Study Abroad Application for Non-LMU programs by the deadline.  Students will go through the Transfer of Credit Approval (TCA) process to determine how the courses will transfer towards their degree as part of their Study Abroad Application. This is in addition to the host institution/organization application materials a student must submit directly to the host institution/organization.
  • Students are strongly encouraged to speak with their departmental advisor about their study abroad plans and discuss how it fits with their academic plan.
Students who do not complete the above full administrative procedure starting with the Study Abroad office will not be approved to receive Academic Credit for their Study Abroad program.

You can find a complete list of courses available on this program on the host university website.
