Fall Semester Away (FSA)

In response to the significant travel disruptions and health concerns due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided to cancel our Fall Semester Away programs. See Coronavirus Updates & Resources here.


Are you ready to start at CC in the fall and also want to challenge yourself by starting abroad? CC has a semester-long program for first year students. The program begins with an on-campus orientation and then you will travel to England, France, Italy, and Greece to complete the first four blocks of your coursework. 

With over 80% of CC students choosing to study outside of the CC campus during their four years here, experiences and classes that student take off-campus make a huge difference to one's college experience.

CC is thrilled to offer students the option of participating in a study abroad fall semester this coming academic year. Feel free to look at our itinerary posted below to get a view of how the FSA program is designed.
