PROGRAM
Spend a semester or year in Lillehammer, Norway!  Lillehammer University College offers a variety of courses in English and also Norwegian language and literature courses.  Lillehammer was the host of the 1994 Winter Olympics and will be the host of the 2016 Winter Youth Olympics, and students can take advantage of the many winter sports activities.  View the Aurora Borealis, and in spring, travel to the fjords and indulge your adventurous side!  Students can even participate in an academic year program in Sports and Outdoors Tourism!

COURSES AND CREDITS
A list of courses taught in English is available at the course information link.  Students applying to this program should plan to meet with the appropriate academic advisors to help determine course selection and to seek the necessary course approval(s).

All students will be registered by the Study Abroad Office as full-time students during their semester abroad, which is 12 hours for undergraduate students and 9 hours for graduate students.  Undergraduate students must return with the equivalent of at least 12 hours of credit on their host university transcript (9 hours for graduate students).  Students can take additional hours and are not limited to the minimum full-time requirement while abroad.  All courses are graded on an ABCDF scale.  There is no Pass/Fail.

FINANCIAL AID
