Study Abroad

The Study Abroad office provides students at Lewis University the unique chance to complement and enhance their academic experience with a variety of international opportunities. Programs run anywhere from a few weeks to an academic year and offer Lewis courses that can earn general education, elective, minor, and/or major credits depending on the program.


Getting started on your study abroad journey is easy. You can start studying abroad as early as the second semester of your first year! Meet with the staff in the Study Abroad office to discuss your options and be guided through the application process.


A student that enrolls in a Lewis University-sponsored Study Abroad program will be considered for all of the financial aid they would receive as if they were enrolled at Lewis, including grants, loans, and scholarships. Lewis-sponsored semester programs are roughly similar in cost as Lewis tuition and include housing and in many cases a meal plan and excursions.


Studying abroad fits into your academic plan because credits earned abroad count toward your Lewis degree. You earn credit toward your general education, major, minor, and/or elective requirements.
