The Lutheran College Washington Consortium
The Lutheran College Washington Semester is a small, personalized program where students live, study, and intern while earning a full semester of academic credit from their college. Located in the Rosslyn neighborhood of Arlington, VA, across the Key Bridge from Georgetown, students enjoy condo living in the complex where LCWS also maintains administrative offices, classrooms, computer lab, conference room, and study lounge.
Fall and spring semesters are offered during which students attend internships on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. On Wednesdays students attend field trips, briefings, tours, and various other activities. Students earn 15 Valpo credit hours. Students register at Valparaiso University for the Washington Consortium Semester and pay to this University the tuition and general fee. Expenses for travel, meals, and lodging are paid directly by the students.
Valparaiso University maintains overseas study centers in England, Germany, Mexico, and China and exchange programs or cooperative agreements with many universities all over the world. When studying at Valpo-approved programs, all credits earned at overseas institutions count as credits at Valpo. For more information, contact Valpo's Office of International Programs.
