Semester/Academic Year Programs
Tuition and fees are paid to the college/university sponsoring your program – or – to a study abroad service provider such as AIFS, AustraLearn, CEA, etc. Lynchburg College scholarships do not “travel” with students on these programs; however, federal aid is applicable to these programs.

The above also applies to summer programs not sponsored by Lynchburg College.
