Strasbourg Study Abroad Program

Application Requirements

Any student in good standing at a law school accredited by the American Bar Association is eligible for the program. Students attending a law school other than Regent University School of Law will be required to furnish a letter of good standing from the dean of their law school. Students from universities or schools of law that are not accredited by the American Bar Assocation are also encouraged to apply. Applications from such students will be reviewd individually.

Enrollment is limited to 40 students. Applications should be received by February 20.  A $250 non-refundable registration fee, is due at the time you submit your application. If you attend the program, the non-refundable deposit fee will be applied toward your tuition for the program. Applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis. The program may reach admission limitations (40 students) before February 20 so you should consider submitting your registration early. However, applications received after February 20 will be considered according to space and accommodation availability.

Financial Aid for Summer

Federal student loans are available for the cost of attendance: airfare, tuition, fees, books, and room/board.  Personal expenses, purchases, and additional travel costs are not included.

The 2014-2015 FAFSA (present year) includes Summer 2015.  If you already have loans for the current year, then you only need to extend your Grad PLUS loan for summer.  Loans will not be processed for Summer 2015 until February - after Spring 2015 has been completed.  If you did not receive student loans this year, but will need loans for the summer, then you should submit the 2014-2015 FAFSA before the end of 2014.

Students will need to purchase airfare prior to the disbursement of summer student loans. Hence, summer loan disbursements will reimburse the student airfare expenditures.

Room & Board

Students in the program are provided living quarters in private dormitories near the University of Strasbourg. Meals will be available at the dormitory. The meal plan includes two meals per weekday (breakfast and dinner).

The extra charge for having a spouse in the dormitory will be $1,260. The extra charge for having a child in the room will be as follows:

  • for a child under 4 years old in an individual bed in the room of the parents -$820 per child
  • for a child from age 4 to age 12 in an individual bed in the room of the parents -$1,140 per child
  • for a child over age 12 -$1,260 per child

If a spouse or child stays for only a portion of the program, then the extra charge will be calculated on a pro-rata basis.


Non-refundable registration fee of $250.00 is due at time of registration.  The program is limited to 40 students.  All registrations must be received by February 20, 2015. 

Balance for tuition, room & board, and fees due by May 29, 2015.
