Study Abroad

To be eligible for all study abroad opportunities, students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and written permission from the department chair. Study for an academic semester or year abroad requires that a student be a junior or in the first semester of the senior year. Graduate students should meet with their chair to determine the best semester to participate in a study abroad opportunity. Participation in one of the summer, faculty-led programs is open to all students, regardless of year. Study abroad during the final semester at CCS is not permitted. For more information, please see the Study Abroad Blackboard Page.

Students must meet with the Director of International Student Services and their department chair no later than March 1 for fall or October 1 for winter.

Students must:

  1. Compete the Study Abroad Approval Form and Packet and submit to the International Student Services Office (ISSO)
  2. Comply with the CCS International Travel Policy requirements
  3. Attend a Pre-departure Informational Meeting with the ISSO

All forms are available from the office of International Student Services. The ISSO is located on the 2nd Floor of the Yamasaki Building.

Tuition Payment Options

The College offers the following tuition payment options:

Full payment of tuition and fees at the time of registration (cash, check, money order, credit card [Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover]). International students must make payments by credit card, check (drawn on a U.S. bank), and international money order or through Flywire (formerly PeerTransfer). Payments may be made on-line using Self-Service, by mail, phone, or in person. International payments made using Flywire may go to

Deferred payment of tuition and fees: The balance of tuition and fees, less financial aid and scholarships, is due on August 1st for the fall semester and December 13th for the winter semester. Tuition invoices will no longer be mailed to homes. Please view and pay your invoice online through Self-Service. All payments not received by the due date will be assessed a $25 late fee per billing (see Academic Calendar for specific dates). The College uses email as an official method of communication with students. Students are responsible for reading emails from the College on a timely basis. The failure to read tuition due date email alerts or viewing invoices through Self-Service does not constitute a valid reason for not paying by the due date.

Third-party billings: Students who are having a third party (such as an employer) pay their tuition must submit an approved voucher (not an application for approval) to the Business Services Department at the time of their registration. Students are responsible for any portion of their tuition and fees that the third party does not cover by the semester due date.

Interest-free monthly payment plan: The College does offer a payment plan through a third party company. Easy online enrollment, flexible payment options and no interest. For additional information please visit:
