If you are interested in summer study away, make sure to schedule an advising appointment. This is required as part of the application process.
Some Approved program provider organizations that we partner with offer study away opportunities during the summer. Apply through PLU before the March 15th deadline and double check the deadline to apply through the program provider organization. Applications open in November to study away the following summer. Let us know of any due dates prior to PLU’s Approved Summer application deadline.
Cost for Approved Summer study away includes the program fee determined by the provider that manages the program, as well as a $200 administrative fee to PLU. Please note that not all financial aid covers summer coursework; contact Student Financial Services for information.
IMPORTANT: Not all programs offered by the organizations we partner with listed below are on the list of PLU’s Approved Summer programs.
