Study Abroad Programs
Students of Central Connecticut State University have the opportunity to enhance their education and improve their career options by studying abroad! The University offers a choice of CCSU-sponsored international programs: short-term Courses Abroad and semester- or year-long study at one of Central's Partner Universities overseas.
Short-term programs, which are led by University professors, offer students a variety of credit-bearing courses in many locations around the world. These Courses Abroad are offered three times a year, during winter session, spring break, and summer session. Detailed information, including registration deadlines, program dates, cost, and sponsoring major departments, is available at the beginning of each academic year on the CIE website: http://www.ccsu.edu/cie.
Students may also elect to study abroad for a semester or a year at one of CCSU's Partner Universities located in Brazil, Chile, China, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Korea, Northern Cyprus, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. In general, students participating in one of these exchange programs pay tuition and fees to CCSU. Although variations in payment procedures do occur depending on the partner university, CCSU scholarships and financial aid apply to all Exchange programs, and applications are due April 1. Courses earned at a partner university transfer as residency credits, and apply toward Central's graduation requirements.
To plan either type of study abroad program, contact the International Education Coordinator in the Center for International Education (CIE), Barnard Hall, Room 123, or call 860-832-2040. Specific program information for all international programs and dates of regularly scheduled information sessions can be found on the CIE website at: http://www.ccsu.edu/cie.
