After class, you can head into the city of Limerick to explore its castle, stroll along the River Shannon, or listen to traditional music. On the weekends, take advantage of travel opportunities throughout Ireland, the UK, and Europe.
“The CISabroad Semester in Limerick, Ireland program was absolutely amazing. The site director is very nice and helpful, always there to answer questions, which makes the transition to living in Ireland a lot easier. Going over with the program was also great because there are several pre-planned trips to famous places in Ireland, which allowed me to form lasting friendships with others in the group.”--Grace Burkhart, Spring 2019
Valpo Application Requirements and Deadlines
You must have at least sophomore standing and at least a 2.9 cumulative GPA. You should consult with your academic advisor and the OIP as

can participate in this program without delaying graduation if they plan
carefully with their academic advisor.
The deadline for Spring and Spring Break programs is October 1st and for Fall and Academic Year programs is March 1st. After the deadline, the Office of International Programs-Study Abroad staff will review applications. Once a decision has been made, applicants will be notified via their Valpo email. Then, please apply for your program's application as listed on the 'Homepage' link at the very top.
See the budget sheet above.
Students pay the same tuition and general fee to Valparaiso University for the term(s) abroad. Any scholarships or financial aid apply, except for aid that requires on-campus participation (work-study and some athletic and music scholarships). Room and board will be charged per rates set by CIS.
Start your scholarships & funding search as early as possible so that you are able to plan and
ensure you are able to meet any deadlines. Your study abroad advisor can also help you with brainstorming
potential resources as well. CISAbroad has scholarship and funding information for if and when you're accepted by CISAbroad for their program.
