TO GET STARTED with your international program of study, here are helpful RESOURCES:

  • Department of State Travel Site
    This government website provides instructions and forms for obtaining a passport, information about travel warnings, and tips for U.S. citizens traveling abroad.
  • Study Abroad.com
    This useful site is a clearinghouse for information about many countries, programs, scholarships, etc. Additionally, there are blogs written by, and contact information for, students who previously studied or are currently studying abroad.
  • CNU Study Abroad Office
    This campus site lists the summer programs led by CNU faculty. Students will enroll in CNU courses and pay tuition to CNU (no transfer credit).
