You have questions?
There is a lot to get done before the adventure begins! In addition to completing your pre and post-acceptance application materials for CCCU GlobalEd, you’ll need to coordinate with your own campus to make sure that you have approval for academic credit and off-campus study participation. Read the FAQs below to find out what you may need to do on your campus in order to study-off campus!
How do I get campus approval?
Each school has a different procedure for approving off-campus study. The best place to find out the details of that process is the Study Abroad or Off-Campus Study office/contact on campus. The student may need to complete additional paperwork or have an interview on campus before their school officially approves them to apply to a CCCU GlobalEd program.
The home campus must verify that the student is approved to participate in a CCCU GlobalEd program through the Off-Campus Study Approval Recommendation form. Instructions on how to complete this form will be provided once an application is opened. The form will be completed by the student applicant and the Study Abroad or Off-Campus Study contact.
How do I send my transcript to CCCU GlobalEd?
To request an official transcript from your college/university, contact your Registrar’s/Records office. Please note that we cannot accept unofficial transcripts.
Where do I send my transcript?
321 8th St NE
Washington, DC 20002
For official electronic copies, please send them to email@example.com
Remember to give your campus enough time to process the transcript prior to the admissions deadline! We can accept unofficial faxed or scanned copies to use to review your application, but CCCU GlobalEd must receive an official transcript before we send you an admissions decision.
What are the equivalent courses on my campus for the courses I would take through CCCU GlobalEd?
CCCU GlobalEd does not assign course numbers due to the variety of campus policies. Each program page’s “Academics” tab includes course descriptions and/or syllabi. Since courses do not frequently change from semester to semester, the posted information will give you and your academic advisor a general idea of the coursework you would take while studying with CCCU GlobalEd. If your campus requires more detailed information, please reach out to a CCCU GlobalEd admissions coordinator.
I do not attend a CCCU school. Can I still participate in a CCCU GlobalEd program?
Sometimes, the online application process can get a little confusing! What do you need to turn in? And when? Then what happens? In the FAQs below we cover information that will be helpful as you go through the CCCU GlobalEd online application process:
How do I know if you have received my requirements?
Please note that hard copy transcripts may take several days to arrive by mail and 1-2 business days to manually process.
If you have questions or concerns about the status of your required materials, please contact your CCCU GlobalEd program advisor.
When will I find out if I have been accepted?
What do I need to do after I'm accepted?
Studying off-campus is a significant decision! One of the biggest components to consider is your financial plan. We recommend strategizing how you will fund your experience and budget during your program before you arrive on-site. In the FAQs below, we answer common questions about finances:
How much will the program cost?
In most cases, your costs will reflect the program’s instructional fees, room, and sometimes board (food). You can find detailed information about costs, anticipated additional expenses, and billing for each program on their “Costs & Dates” tab.
Will I be able to use my financial aid during my CCCU GlobalEd Program?
Again, it is very important for you to check with your school to determine if/how campus aid or scholarships are applied to a term off campus with a CCCU GlobalEd program!
Are there any scholarships available?
For students with high demonstrated financial need, there may also be fee reductions available. If you believe you may qualify, please reach out to your CCCU GlobalEd Admissions Coordinator.
We highly recommend discussing your plans to study off-campus with your parents or guardians as soon as possible! To help get the conversation going, the FAQs below provide answers for commonly-asked questions.
What important information should I share?
From there, you can get into the nitty-gritty details. Everyone will have different concerns and questions, but some important topics to cover are program dates, costs, safety, and communication. While some topics are covered below, we also encourage you to share the program’s website with them. It contains a world of information about everything from housing to academics to program staff.
Who should they contact with questions?
In the case of emergencies, the CCCU GlobalEd office will communicate directly with parents/guardians as well as students’ home institutions.
How should I address safety concerns?
CCCU GlobalEd has been in operation for more than 40 years. We only operate programs in locations where we are confident that students will be safe. We continually monitor the news and safety conditions for changes, responding as necessary. Each program has an emergency plan that is reviewed regularly, in light of standards of good practice in off-campus programming, local regional advice, risk management consultations, and experience gained through previous emergency events. Program staff members are well connected within their local communities, with many years of experience and deep networks of resources to draw upon for advice and assistance. Additionally, each program reviews safety topics during their student orientation.
For more details on this subject, please direct them to CCCU GlobalEd’s Health & Safety page.
Will CCCU GlobalEd ever contact my parents/guardians?
How often will I be able to communicate with my family and friends back home?
During the term, you may travel to places that might not always have reliable access to phones or email, but in the case of emergencies, CCCU GlobalEd program staff always have means of communicating with our U.S. offices, including times when the group is traveling.
