FAQ

What if I receive a scholarship at LCC?

While being at Gordon you will still be treated as an LCC student here on campus; thus, you will have to pay what you usually pay each semester. The only difference is that you will be asked to pay the dorm fees for Neumann even if you live in Enns.

Can I study at Gordon and participate in Work and Travel program?

No, you won’t be able to stay and work after your semester at Gordon is over, since you will be going to the US on the student visa. If you have signed up to participate in Work and Travel, you will have to come back to Lithuania, apply for work visa and go back to the US. The same principle applies to students studying abroad in the fall. You will have to come back to Lithuania after Work and Travel and only then apply for your student visa.

Will my monthly stipend cover my meals?

Gordon College has a meal plan that will provide you with three meals a day. The stipend will cover some of the small expenses like toiletries, school supplies and such.

Do I have to pay dorm fees if I am not living in the dorms?

Yes, you will be asked to cover the fees for one semester at Neumann Hall on a two person side in a five person room. Students living in Enns Hall will be asked to pay for Neumann Hall.
