Program Overview

Italian LSA+
The LSA+ is offered in Fall and Winter terms.  In the fall term, the LSA and LSA+ take place simultaneously.  The LSA+ is the only program offered in Rome in Winter term.
The LSA and LSA+  programs in the fall will coincide and the students on both programs will enroll in Italian 8. 

A combined LSA and LSA+ off-campus program in Rome will be offered by the Department of French and Italian in Fall term, beginning in 2017.  In both programs, students live with Italian families and visit cultural and historic sites in and around Rome.  The courses offered in each are specific to the program, with the exception of Italian 8, in which students from the LSA and the LSA+ will participate together.  Faculty from the Department of French and Italian will direct the program.

Student Life

Students live with Italian families.  Like any relationship, there may be a few challenges or awkward moments, but learning is shaped by how open we are to cultivating new perspectives.  The cultural environment permits students to immerse themselves in everyday Italian life in an ideal location rich with history.  Homestays support opportunities to explore Italian culture and society.

Financial Information

Tuition and Fees
The fees charged by the College for a Dartmouth-sponsored off-campus term of study include regular tuition charges for a term at Dartmouth, service fees, as well as the specific costs established for each off-campus study locale. In many programs, the room and board costs tend to be higher than for a term in Hanover. You can view a budget sheet for this program by clicking on the appropriate term: winter or spring. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student.

Financial Aid
In order that all qualified Dartmouth undergraduate students may have the opportunity to take part in off-campus programs, the College endeavors to adjust its normal financial aid awards for students already receiving aid. Tuition and expected family contribution for Dartmouth's off-campus programs are the same as for an on-campus term. Assistance is available to meet extra costs associated with off-campus programs, including airfare. Half of any extra cost is met with additional Dartmouth scholarship; loan assistance is offered for the other half. Loan assistance is also offered to replace the employment that would normally be included in an on-campus term. Although financial aid recipients are given aid to cover all of the required costs of the program, students are responsible for purchasing their own plane ticket and, on some programs, meals. Often this means that part of the expected family contribution is used towards these costs rather than for tuition.
