Academic Expectations


To be considered for admission to CCSA programs students MUST:

  • Be enrolled in a degree seeking undergraduate or graduate program
  • Be in good academic standing
  • Have completed course prerequisites (if applicable)

Students will be expected to complete assignments on time and to attend all program and class-related events. Many courses will require work, such as reading, to be completed prior to the program departure date. Courses on programs of less than four weeks duration will require completion and submission of projects and/or research papers after the return date of the program. 

It is the student's responsibility to consult with his/her academic advisor prior to submission of his/her application to insure that the CCSA course is academically appropriate for the student's needs, e.g., major or graduation requirements. Should a change in course selection be required or requested, it is the responsibility of the student to confirm the appropriateness of that course to the student's program of study and degree requirements.

All courses offered by CCSA require an academic commitment from students. Courses are listed as LD (lower division--introductory/intermediate level), UD (upper division--advanced level) and G (graduate), and the level of work required for successful completion of the course will be commensurate with the level assigned.
