Study Abroad

Thanks to 200+ programs in nearly 70 countries, ranging from three weeks up to an academic year, 40 percent of Lehigh undergrads have an international experience.

Lehigh Study Abroad Programs

Studying abroad is an experience like no other: you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in an entirely new culture while continuing to further your studies. Whether it be a few weeks, or an entire semester, the world is your oyster, and the opportunities are endless.

The program cost varies by program and generally includes tuition for three to six academic credits, housing, some meals and group excursions.

Please note that when a student registers for a Lehigh-led program, he or she is financially committing to the program and will be billed for the full cost of the program.

The $250 deposit is non-refundable, except in the case that the student is not accepted into the program or the program is canceled due to insufficient participation.

Lehigh University will bill participants directly for tuition and the program costs.
