How to Apply


To apply to CCSP download and complete all the forms below.  Also visit your off-campus programs office to inform them of your intention to study with CCSP.  They will be able to help you with your applicaiton and any other procedures your school has for studying abroad (which there normally are).  If your school does not have a dedicated off-campus programs office then visit your registrar.

CCSP will consider your application as soon as it is complete, so the sooner you get your application in the sooner we can let you know if you're accepted into the program.  We strongly encourage you, therefore, to send in your application well before the application deadline.    

Tip:  Don't forget to get official school signatures on the second page of the application form from your off-campus programs office or registrar, and don't forget to include your $50 application fee.

The final class for the semester will be determined approximately a week  to 10 days after the application deadline.  After the class has been finalized you will be sent an enrollment package via e-mail  (i.e.,10-14 days after the application deadline) that will include several forms to be returned to CCSP (i.e., course registration, waiver, community norms agreement, medical and insurance forms, etc.) and detailed logisitical information about the program.  

You will also be informed about travel details including confirmation of the travel dates and arrival and departure windows for buying airline tickets.  It is very important that you DO NOT purchase an airline ticket until you recive this information otherwise you may need to change tickets at your own cost to coincide with group pick-up and drop-off schedules.  With campuses several hours drive from arriving airports students need to be transported as a group.
