Information Session

The Osaka Japanese LSA+ Information Session with the faculty members leading the Summer 2024 program will be on Wednesday, October 11, 6:00pm in Room 314 Anonymous Hall.


During the summer of 2024, ASCL will offer the Japanese LSA+ Program in Osaka, where participating students will take Japanese 22, 23, and the Director's Course taught in English. Osaka is Japan's second largest city and known for its amazing food, vibrant mercantile culture, and its status as the "mecca of comedy" in Japan. The group will take trips to areas of cultural and historical significance, including Tokyo, Kyoto, and the site of the first official US-Japan encounter: Shimoda. For a country of the size of California, the cultural differences in these locations will be striking. People speak different dialects, their mannerisms are distinct, and you will notice that the Osakans are by far the friendliest (and most outspoken) of all Japanese.

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 each program by clicking on the appropriate term under "Financing Your Program". 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.

Students are responsible for purchasing their own plane tickets and, in many cases, meals. Often, families find that they owe less for billable items for study away terms but will instead use more of their expected family contribution towards indirect costs such as the flight and meals. For help sorting out who pays what and how, contacting the Financial Aid office is often advisable.  

Students are responsible for purchasing their own plane tickets and, in many cases, meals. Often this means that part of the expected family contribution is used towards these costs rather than for tuition.
