There will also be a special, evening Information Session at the Annual Study Abroad Show and Tell.  This will take place on Thursday, March 3 from 6-8 PM in the Copenbarger Dining Room (above Wandas). 

**Please note that due to the overwhelming interest in Study Abroad, personal appointments are NOT possible before attending an Information Session. 

In other words, if you are interested in Study Abroad then you WILL find a way to attend the numerous sessions that are offered throughout the year.



Each program (provided by 3rd party vendors) sets its own GPA, language, and class requirement(s). 


However, CBU will not approve a student to study abroad until they have (1) attended an information session, (2) completed a petition, and (3) completed one academic year at CBU.

Dr. Jeff Barnes
Dean of Academic Services

REMEMBER: Do NOT go to CBU Offices to ask about your petition. All your correspondence MUST happen through Academic Services.
