    2020 Off-Campus Summer Blocks

    COVID-19 & CC Summer Blocks Away

    Please see the most recent video update on "Returning to Study Abroad in 2021" on our COVID-19 Updates page, posted September 7, 2020.

    We continue to regularly monitor and communicate with each of our partner programs and CC faculty on the plans to offer and support 2021 study abroad program options, in conjunction with U.S. State Department and CDC travel restrictions and guidance.

    All Summer 2020 CC Summer Programs Off-Campus were suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    • Students enrolled in these courses have been provided with multiple deferral or re-enrollment options, depending upon the course’s availability online in Summer 2020 or abroad in Summer 2021.
    • Students who defer until Summer 2021 are guaranteed slots in the 2021 program and all aid awards from Summer 2020 will be honored in Summer 2021.

    Below is the listing of what was scheduled to be offered in Summer 2020; some will be rescheduled and offered in Summer 2021, along with some new listings. Summer courses are set and announced each year by Thanksgiving, so please stay tuned to this space for announcements on the full Summer 2021 lineup.

    Applications for summer programs generally open in November in Summit. Interested students should be sure to check with the professor teaching the course to learn more about any additional application steps (such as an interview). If you have questions on a specific course, please contact the professor(s) listed below.

    Petitioning for non-CC summer programs:

    CC does not maintain an approved list of non-CC summer programs, the way we do for the fall and spring semesters. In the summer, we encourage CC students to apply for one of the CC summer programs led by our own faculty. For most students, this is the best option: you can use your Wildcard (if unused) for a block of tuition, and there is financial aid available to apply for, if you currently receive need-based aid at CC.

    If you wish to pursue an academic course abroad in the summer in a subject that is not represented in the above slate of CC summer programs for that year, you may submit a Summer Petition through Summit to have the credits reviewed for transferability. The study abroad program must issue you a transcript upon completion from an accredited academic university, college, or institution. Language schools which are not accredited and experiential learning organizations which do not offer academic credit are not eligible for petitioning.

    Please be aware that there is typically no additional financial aid from CC for study abroad programs in the summer that are not run through CC. You may have some remaining loan eligibility (check with Financial Aid), and can apply for outside scholarships or program scholarships to help defray the cost.

    Students who do not petition in Summit in advance for non-CC summer study abroad programs will not be able to transfer credit towards their CC degree. The deadline in Summit to submit a Summer Petition for Non-CC Program Abroad is April 1 each year for the upcoming summer.
