Earn college credit for coursework held off campus!
Each summer dedicated Fort Lewis College faculty take students off-campus to destinations in the US and around the world for academically challenging, experiential learning excursions known as Innovative Month Programs. Academic preparation combines with geographic and cultural immersion to allow students a unique opportunity for immediate, real-life application of information and ideas, transforming learning into a powerful, true-life educational experience that is impossible to replicate in a classroom.
If you are interested in a program, contact the Faculty Lead for that program ASAP. Enrollment is limited and the programs fill up quickly! After faculty has accepted you in the program, the next step is to fill out your registration forms and pay the initial deposit toward program costs at the Cashier window in Berndt Hall. If you are a senior and need the Innovative Month course credits to graduate, please notify CE and we will work with you to expedite the registration process. (Innovative Month registrations cannot be done on WebOpus).
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
~ Mark Twain
