TLU Faculty-led Programs
A variety of periodic study abroad programs are offered through TLU. These are typically two- to four-week programs led by a professor in May or June. Past programs have included: Kinesiology to Norway, Dramatic Media & Psychology to Greece, Economics to Ecuador and Biology to Belize.
Tuition and program fees are applied to the fall or spring TLU invoice and financial aid can be applied towards the program. Fees, which usually range from $3,500 to $4,500 typically include airfare, lodging, ground transport, and group admissions on planned programs. Some or all of the meals are generally covered, depending on the program. Students must pre-register for the respective class and affiliated lab travel portion and must have a minimum GPA of 2.25 and a good campus discipline record to participate. Application and a $300 non-refundable deposit are due at the time of pre-registration. Locations and course subjects vary year to year.
