Program Overview

This program coincides with the French LSA in Lyon.

Lyon Lyon is the second largest city in France. Located at the junction of the Saone and Rhone rivers, Lyon has been, since its founding by the Romans, a major center of culture and commerce. Today the old city, with its vestiges of the Roman and Medieval eras, is surrounded by the evidence of a thriving urban economy. The LSA+ program is affiliated with the University of Lyon. In addition to the courses taught at the University of Lyon, students will be able to benefit from the cultural offerings of the city theaters, concerts, museums as well as from the beauty of the nearby Alpine and Beaujolais regions. Lyon also offers sporting opportunities.

Financial Information

Tuition and Fees
The fees charged by the College for a Dartmouth-sponsored off-campus term of study include regular tuition charges for a term at Dartmouth, service fees, as well as the specific costs established for each off-campus study locale. In many programs, the room and board costs tend to be higher than for a term in Hanover. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student.

Financial Aid
In order that all qualified Dartmouth undergraduate students may have the opportunity to take part in off-campus programs, the College endeavors to adjust its normal financial aid awards for students already receiving aid. Tuition and expected family contribution for Dartmouth's off-campus programs are the same as for an on-campus term. Assistance is available to meet extra costs associated with off-campus programs, including airfare. Half of any extra cost is met with additional Dartmouth scholarship; loan assistance is offered for the other half. Loan assistance is also offered to replace the employment that would normally be included in an on-campus term. Although financial aid recipients are given aid to cover all of the required costs of the program, students are responsible for purchasing their own plane ticket and, on some programs, meals. Often this means that part of the expected family contribution is used towards these costs rather than for tuition.
