Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. Registration for LUISS courses takes place during your second week in Rome. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Italy. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
