Student studying abroad in Barcelona.Study abroad can be an enlightening, maturing, and life-changing experience. Students are challenged to re-examine themselves, their attitudes, and their studies as they learn to understand new and different cultures. In cooperation with the American Institute for Foreign Study, the Los Rios Community College District offers unique study opportunities in cities such as London, England; Barcelona, Spain; and Florence, Italy.


  • You must be at least 18 years of age or older.
  • You must be a student in good academic standing with 12 college units completed by the time you go abroad.
  • You need to have a minimum overall GPA of 2.25 in your college classes. During the thirteen week semester program, all students take 12 units in the Study Abroad program, a three unit Life and Culture class, one other Los Rios class, and then two other classes from the list of offerings.

Upcoming Trips

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Study Abroad program is currently on hold. Out of an abundance of caution, and to reduce uncertainty for students and families, the Los Rios Community College District has decided to preemptively cancel all faculty-led study abroad programs through Spring 2022. Please check back in Fall 2021 for updates.
