Study Abroad Programs at City College
Welcome to The CCNY Office of Study Abroad & International ProgramsThe City College of New York has a variety of opportunities that run from semester-long programs in Europe, to short-term programs during the winter and summer sessions in various locations throughout the world. CCNY also offers International Service-Learning programs through which students intern in countries with communities in need that can offer an enriching environment of collaboration. Some of these programs offer homestays with host families, and field trips to places of historical and cultural interest. All of them give you the opportunity to earn academic credit for offered courses, or for research and experiential learning.
CUNY-Wide Policies on Traveling Abroad
The program or trip director/leader must provide a comprehensive itinerary to the Office. All participants must sign the CUNY Waiver & Release Agreement, which details appropriate behavior and individual accountability according to a host country's laws while on the trip. This document is irreplaceable as it clarifies any question of liability issues between all participants and CUNY. All participants must be enrolled for international health insurance through the duration of travel. CUNY has an account with CISI and enrollment is managed by the CCNY Office of Study Abroad and International Programs. All participants complete the Emergency Contacts Form, which allows the College to notify those listed in case it were necessary. FERPA regulations would prevent us from doing so without the Form and the participant's approval.
