Study Abroad and Domestic Study Away

Participating in a study abroad program, whether to study, intern, research or volunteer, can be a life-changing experience. At Lake Forest College, we understand that our students have individual learning goals, which is why we have such a robust set of approved study abroad and domestic study away programs — over 200 options in 70 countries! (And this is just our semester options!) 

--Will GEO programs run for Spring 2021?--
The College has made the difficult decision to cancel student participation in Spring 2021 programs. 

While Lake Forest College continues to be deeply committed to the value of studying abroad, students’ health and safety are what guided the College’s decision. 

See the Financial Aid section for more details regarding aid transferability.
