Education Abroad

Something more than just a destination!


There are academic, financial and logistical considerations that go into the process of selecting a CCU-approved education abroad program, so students have to plan early and work effectively with campus advisers.

Choosing to study, research or intern abroad is one of the best decisions a student can make, and we are thrilled you are considering a semester, academic year or short-term experience! To ensure you have the information you need to make an informed program choice, our student adviser hosts two Virtual Abroad 101 sessions every week on Tuesday and Wednesday from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM for students interested in learning more about education abroad opportunities.

After attending this 45-minute session, you will be able to:

  • Identify reasons why students travel abroad with CCU
  • Name some of the benefits of participating in an international education program
  • Apply online for a CCU-approved option that lines up with your goals

What to bring: NOTHING! We have you covered.
