Lutheran College Washington Semester | An Experience of a Lifetime | Wasington, D.C. | Summer | Nationals

Summer Residential Program

Overview

If a traditional fall or spring semester experience will not fit into your undergraduate plan of study, our Summer Residential Program is a great alternative!  The Summer Residential Program allows you to live in our fully furnished apartments in Arlington, VA while you take on an internship in our Nation's Capital during your summer break.

 

The Summer 2022 Program is open from Saturday, May 7th, 2022 to Sunday, August 14th, 2022. Residents have the choice of staying with us a minimum of 10 weeks or a maximum of 14 weeks during that timeframe. Weeks are only calculated from weekend to weekend. If you would prefer to move in during the week, you will be charged as if you were moving in the weekend prior. 10 weeks is the minimum length of stay; if you wish to stay less than 10 weeks you will still be billed for 10 weeks. 

Space in the Summer Residential Program is limited, and applicants are accepted in the order in which their application and deposit is received. Please see below for eligibility information. Internship assistance is available as needed to students from our member institutions. 

Please see below for our COVID-19 Rules and Regulations. The dates of the Summer Residential Program are subject to change given the state of the COVID-19 pandemic and any state regulations in place at the time. Any changes to the Summer Residential Program will be reflected on this site.

Application

Please complete the application form below and submit it to LCWS by email (outreach@washingtonsemester.org), mail, or fax.

 

Your application is not considered to be complete until we have also received your $300 Application and Damage Deposit. You may pay your Application and Damage Deposit by check or PayPal (email pay@washingtonsemester.org to set up PayPal payment). Your Application and Damage Deposit is held throughout your stay and completely refundable, pending full payments to your financial account and the condition of your condo upon move out. The Application and Damage Deposit is also refundable for the Summer 2022 session if the COVID-19 pandemic forces us to change the dates of the Summer Residential Program and a previously accepted student is no longer able to participate due to that change.
