Participating in a study abroad program, whether to study, intern, research or volunteer, can be a life-changing experience. At Lake Forest College, we understand that our students have individual learning goals, which is why we have such a robust set of approved study abroad and domestic study away programs — over 250 options in 70 countries! (And this is just our semester options!)
At Lake Forest College, students may use their financial aid for our approved semester programs. Please explore our Off-Campus Study and Financial Aid information page for more guidance.
The GEO (Global Engagement Office) Application is Lake Forest College's internal study abroad application.
Students must submit a GEO Application (and the application must be approved by the Global Engagement Office) before they can start a program-specific application.
