J-Term Programs

A J-Term study away program is held in January, between the Fall and Spring semesters.  These short-term, faculty-led study away programs are intensive academic experiences that are initiated, organized, and carried out by members of the PLU faculty, with assistance from the Wang Center for Global Education.  Each J-Term, students immerse themselves in a new country, culture or discipline that they many have never imagined.

NOTE: Students must be registered as full-time in the Fall or Spring semesters to receive J-Term study away credits at no charge.  If students are only registered as part-time, tuition charges will apply in addition to the published J-Term study away program fees.
