Summer Blocks Off-Campus
Students should apply through the Summer Session Office.
Semester and Year-Long Off-Campus Study
-For the Fall Semester off-campus: Opens on January 1, closes March 1(or when full)|
Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Approval in any given semester is not guaranteed, and students should explore options in both the fall and spring semesters.
Semester and year-long off-campus study is generally open to sophomores and juniors. Seniors wishing to study off-campus for a semester may need to obtain additional approval but this is generally also a possibility. In addition to meeting the application requirements of the program you are applying to, you must also be in good academic and disciplinary standing at CC, and obtain your academic advisor’s approval to study off-campus. Students who are currently on academic or judicial probation may not be eligible to study off-campus.
Students applying for an Approved or ACM program will need to complete the CC Internal Application below , in addition to the application for the program itself, which can be obtained on the program’s website.
CC Internal Application (for Approved and ACM Programs)
You should start working on the actual program application as soon as possible, regardless of when they list their deadlines as. You must submit final confirmation to CC of your plans for the next semester by November 1 for Spring semester off-campus, or by May 1 for Fall semester off-campus. That means you need to be accepted by your program by that point and have submitted your deposit. Do not wait to apply for your program!
Students who are applying to one of the CC Programs and Exchanges will just complete one application for that specific program:
CC Asia Semester
CC Semester in Tours, France
CC Semester in Lüneburg, Germany
CC International Student Teaching Program (contact the Education Department)
Quest University Exchange in Canada
Sciences Po Exchange in France
Saimaa University of Applied Sciences Exchange in Finland
German Exchange Programs in Göttingen and Regensburg (contact the German Department)
Jönköping Int’l Business School Exchange in Sweden
University of Wales, Aberystwyth Exchange
Students who receive approval for their off-campus study will need to complete the Confirmation Form in the Registrar’s Office to finalize their leave (as described above), by Nov 1 for programs that begin in the spring and May 1 for programs that begin in the fall. You should do this as soon as you are accepted or are sure you are going off-campus.
If you change your off-campus study program or track, you must submit a Revision Form to the Office of Off-Campus Study to gain updated approval. These forms are available at The Office of Off-Campus Study.
