Apply to study abroad at Columbia College

A semester or a short trip abroad is a great way to immerse yourself in another culture and gain a greater understanding of the world. To apply for studying abroad while at Columbia College, follow the process below.

Step 1: Set up an advising appointment

Students interested in education abroad should contact EducationAbroad@CCIS.edu to find a time you can meet with an advisor.

Step 2: Submit application
