How do I . . . Learn about Study Abroad opportunities?
The first step to learning all about Study Abroad opportunities at CCSU is to attend an Info Session.  Students will find the complete schedule of Info Sessions, which occur frequently throughout the fall and spring semesters, posted on the Center for International Education website, on posters and flyers campus-wide, and by stopping by the Center in Barnard Hall, room 123.  Check our home page for complete information.

How do I . . . Get help with planning to Study Abroad?
Students will want to start their planning by attending an Info Session where they can learn about CCSU's many international education options and receive helpful hand-outs.  Students should also meet with an advisor to discuss their intentions; their major, minor, and general education options while abroad; their anticipated credit load, etc.  Central offers short-term Course Abroad programs led by CCSU faculty, as well as semester- and year-long programs of study at Partner Universities around the world.  There is a program that is right for you!  Check the University calendar for the application deadlines and review the details on the CIE web site.

How do I . . . Pay for Study Abroad?
In most cases, if you participate in a CCSU-approved Partner University program, you pay CCSU tuition and fees, and all financial assistance that you receive to attend CCSU will apply (e.g., scholarships, grants, financial aid).  If you register for a CCSU Course Abroad for the Winter or Summer Session, the charge will vary, but it will include your round trip airfare.  The cost of Courses Abroad that are part of a regular Spring Semester class will also include round trip airfare, but do not charge additional tuition. There are also many opportunities to apply for scholarships and financial support. Stop by the CIE for more information and also review our web site.

How do I . . . Meet International Students and students returning from studying abroad?
The best way to meet CCSU international students from around the world, as well as the many US students who have returned from studying in other countries, is to attend an International Relations Club meeting. The Club meets every Friday at 5:00 p.m. in the Student Center.  For more information, visit the Club's web site at:
