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 focus). 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.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You will not be able to register if you have any holds on your account.  Please resolve any holds well in advance of registration day.  Students can find step-by-step registration instructions and information here. You can also find further information below in Important Things to Know About Off-Campus Interim Programs.

Programs close quickly.  If you aren't able to get into your course, complete a wait-list application through the study abroad portal.  If you would like us to be aware of any special considerations when moving students from the wait-list into the course, please express those in your wait-list application rather than calling or coming to the office.
