Lafayette Interim and Summer Programs

Lafayette offers both winter and May/summer interim off-campus programs to Lafayette students.
  • Winter: Programs are offered during the winter term running for 3-4 weeks in January (or between December and January; consult individual program brochure pages for exact dates.).
  • May/Summer: Programs are offered during the May session or later in the summer running anywhere from 3-8 weeks (consult individual program brochure pages for exact dates).
All interim courses are credit-bearing and offer either 1 or 2 Lafayette credits (depending on program length and course focuses). Most interim courses fulfill one or more Common Course of Study requirement (i.e. GM1, GM2, LANG, SS, H, NS, etc.). This information can be found on the program brochure pages (linked below in the Programs section). Should there be any discrepancy between the official Banner Catalog and the program brochure page, please contact the Registrar’s Office and/or the Office of International & Off-Campus Education for further information.
