We offer programs in 30 countries through four providers.
The Concordia International Studies Consortium (CISC) is taking Lutheran students from all over the country to Costa Rica this spring (2013).
We will be offering a new semester in Europe in Spring of 2104. Details to come.
INTERNATIONAL STUDIES ABROAD(ISA) is the most popular provider of long-term study programs for CTX students and a trusted source of full-service study abroad programs around the world.
AHA INTERNATIONAL (AHA) is another trusted independent provider with a global network of locations providing full-service summer and semester programs.
Our own CTX Travel Courses offer students a few key destinations each year. These programs are usually two weeks long and offer 3-6 semester credits.
Travel Courses are very affordable, since 100% of financial aid applies to tuition. Ground costs (flights, hotels, food, etc.) are extra.
WHAT CREDITS CAN I GET?
You'll earn 12-17 credits in a semester-long program. Summer and CTX Travel Courses return 3-6 semester hours.
Credits you earn through our approved programs (above)are guaranteed to transfer. But each program is different, with a unique set of classes. So you’ll have to make some choices about how to spend your time, much like you would for a semester here at Concordia.
In almost every case, at least some financial aid will apply.
The way we set up our contracts with our partners allows you to stay enrolled here at CTX and pay here at CTX.
Since your enrollment status doesn't change, that means any third-party loans (private or gov.) and non-military federal grants/aid you already receive will apply, just like any other semester.
If you are currently receiving a merit (academic) scholarship from Concordia, that will not carry over to a semester off-campus. Merit scholarships will kick in again when you are back on campus.
CTX Travel Courses are eligible for 100% of financial aid. If you choose a spring or fall Travel course, tuition can be rolled into your full-time bill if your total hours are less than 18.
NOTE FOR SUMMER TRAVEL: Concordia offers no institutional aid for any summer courses, whether traditional or travel. But all other types of third-party aid are eligible, provided your financial awards still have funds remaining for the year.
