Students must register for study abroad in person at the Student Records Office on the Oakland or San Francisco campus; tuition must be paid in full at the time of registration.

Payment can be made by check (payable to CCA), Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express (if you are applying for a loan, please read the Financial Aid section).

Because registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, once instructor approval has been obtained, interested students are encouraged to register early to ensure their place in class.

Instructor approval to attend a study abroad course does not constitute registration.

Once eight students are registered in the course, we will be able to give registrants the go-ahead to purchase airline tickets—just one more reason for students to register as soon as possible! Often, the sooner airfare is booked, the less expensive the price.

Students may still register for summer study abroad as long as spaces are still available and accommodations have not yet been finalized.

Registration begins: Monday, February 22

Refund deadline: Friday, March 11 (no refunds after this date)

Withdrawal deadline: Monday, May 2

All students who register for CCA study-abroad courses are required to sign a liability release form at the time of registration.


CCA summer study-abroad programs are designed for current CCA students. If spaces are still available in a program after March 6, however, we are happy to enroll strong students from other AICAD schools and other colleges/universities into the program.

Please contact the Office of Special Programs if you wish to explore this possibility:
