General Information - Study Abroad Program

  • All courses except for languages are taught in English.
  • Students may live with local families, or in college-approved apartments or residence halls, depending on the location of the program.
  • All credits earned while studying abroad transfer to CCRI and with prior approval, will count towards graduation. However, in order to transfer Study Abroad credits back to CCRI (whether for enrichment or formal program), you must submit an application directly through the CCRI Study Abroad office.
  • The cost of a semester varies with the institution selected, but would include tuition, fees, books, supplies, housing, meals, airfare and personal expenses for one semester. The shorter sessions are less expensive, varying with the location and program.
  • Deadlines for spring semester applications are usually mid October, summer late March and for fall, late May. Dr. Deborah Notarianni-Girard recommends beginning to plan at least a year in advance, so there is plenty of time to decide on the best location and academic program, and no financial surprises will be encountered.
  • A valid US passport is required for all programs; visas are required for some countries, at an extra charge.
  • Information about courses offered in the semester you will be abroad and housing choices will be sent to you directly from the sponsoring institution after you are accepted into their program.
