FAQ

What if I receive a scholarship at LCC?

While being at Gordon you will still be treated as an LCC student here on campus; thus, you will have to pay what you usually pay each semester. The only difference is that you will be asked to pay the dorm fees for Neumann even if you live in Enns.

Can I study at Gordon and participate in Work and Travel program?

No, you won’t be able to stay and work after your semester at Gordon is over, since you will be going to the US on the student visa. If you have signed up to participate in Work and Travel, you will have to come back to Lithuania, apply for work visa and go back to the US. The same principle applies to students studying abroad in the fall. You will have to come back to Lithuania after Work and Travel and only then apply for your student visa.

Will my monthly stipend cover my meals?

Gordon College has a meal plan that will provide you with three meals a day. The stipend will cover some of the small expenses like toiletries, school supplies and such.

Do I have to pay dorm fees if I am not living in the dorms?

Yes, you will be asked to cover the fees for one semester at Neumann Hall on a two person side in a five person room. Students living in Enns Hall will be asked to pay for Neumann Hall.

American Studies Program (currently suspended)

The American Studies Program (ASP) in Washington, D.C. connects you and your faith to the institutions and leaders who are impacting issues in public policy and strategic communication. You are independent, but not alone. Future politician or not, you will nurture the leader within during your experience in ASP.

This is a practicum based study abroad semester for International Relations majors only. Mandatory courses include: Internship (20-30 hrs/wk) and Topics in Leadership and vocation. The student will choose 2  of the project track courses on the side of the practicum courses. 

Costs:

  • LCC tuition (27 ECTS credits)
  • LCC dorm fee (Neumann 2 side 5 person room)
  • Student is responsible for covering the cost of a round trip airfare to/from Washington DC.
  • Student is responsible for applying and covering all fees related to obtaining a valid US visa.

This fee is made up of two parts: (1) upfront payment for the living expenses (i.e. meals, in-city transportation) in Washington DC, which will be returned to the student in installments upon arrival to Washington DC and (2) admin fee (which adds up to around €150 depending on the exchange rate).
