Applicants who wish to enroll in LIU Global on a non-credit basis may be admitted as Associate students. This is an ideal option for: high school graduates interested in a gap year; adult students interested in studying abroad; college graduates who did not have an opportunity to study abroad; and/or graduate students who want a global experience.
Associate students participate fully in LIU Global, making full use of the resources of the overseas centers, such as faculty advisement, help in making field research contacts, on-going support, and evaluation.
However, since no credit is awarded, nor is financial aid available to such students, tuition is on a reduced basis (approximately half of the current amount). All other expenses such as room and board, books and supplies, travel, etc. remain the same as matriculated students. Please contact the Admissions Office for more information.
