Program cancellations:

Out of an abundance of caution, and to reduce uncertainty for students and families, the Los Rios Community College District has decided to preemptively cancel all faculty-led study abroad programs through Spring 2022. We are saddened for students who have looked forward to this opportunity. Please check back in Fall 2021 for updates.

The purpose of International Education in the Los Rios District is to offer a variety of programs and services that will provide students, faculty, and the community at large with the knowledge, skills, and cultural experiences necessary to become well prepared members of a global society. Additionally, the international education programs in the Los Rios Community college District promote and encourage the internationalization of the college by fostering mutual understanding, facilitating preparation for the world of work, and supporting lifelong learning through activities that provide opportunities for participation in the international community.

Los Rios Study Abroad Program

The basic requirements to be accepted into the program are:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age or older 
  • You must be a student in good academic standing with 12 college units completed by the time you go abroad.

You need to have a minimum overall GPA of 2.25 in your college classes. During the thirteen week semester program, all students take 12 units in the Study Abroad program: a three unit Life and Culture class, one other Los Rios class and then two other classes from the list of offerings.
