WELCOME! Kris Holloway, Fearless Leader (President) of CISabroad

We have a crazy acronym at CISabroad: “ISEFY!” What’s it mean, you ask? It means, “I’m So Excited For You!” We say the phrase, “I’m so excited for you” at CISabroad almost more than any other, including the phrase, "Who took the last cup of coffee and didn’t start a fresh pot?” (Which is saying something – we run on caffeine here.)

HI, WE'RE NICE TO MEET YOU. Have you heard of us before? We’re a fun-loving, enthusiastic travel partner who supports you through every step of your study or intern abroad experience, but why listen to just us? Here’s what recent alumni of our programs had to say. (Oh, stop. We’re blushing already.)

Why is this such a common exclamation? Because it’s true. And you can’t fake the truth. We are so excited for YOU to: • Make BANK in your job post-college – ($7,000 more per year)1 • Raise your self-confidence and independent living skills2 • Increase your GPA3 • Expand your curiosity about the world2 We are so excited for you because at CISabroad, we’ve all had our lives changed by experiences like you are about to discover. I grew up in rural Ohio and never spent more than two weeks (on vacation) in another country before I lived abroad for six months in Paris. Was I terrified? Yes. Did it change my life? Yes. Would I do it again in a heartbeat? Yes, yes, yes. I joined the Peace Corps, wrote a book, and now am president of a fabulous company. And it all started in the same place where you are now. At the beginning. So, explore this catalog. Have a conversation with your parents. Call us up and ask questions. Be bold. Welcome to the rest of your life. It’s gonna be great. Kris Holloway

 tudy abroad may lead to better GPA, graduation rates, S USA Today, July 14, 2010

"Our site director was really involved from the moment we got to the airport and she was extremely knowledgeable about Prague and the Czech Republic, which made being in such a foreign place much more comforting. CISabroad and our site director were constantly planning fun events for us in between our travels, so there was never a dull moment! CISabroad provided me with so many great memories and experiences from abroad that I will never forget.” Alexis Szathmary, University of Tampa, Semester in Prague - Business and Economics Summer 2016

E CISABROAD. "Studying abroad has given me an invaluable opportunity to learn about myself, others, and the world around me. I would recommend studying abroad to anyone and everyone.” Alison Rollag, Augustana University, Semester in Greece - Spring 2017

"One aspect of CISabroad's program I enjoyed the most was the liberty the program offered of traveling and exploring, yet the reassurance that I had an entire team looking after me if I ever needed it. I also enjoyed the group cultural activities that were set up every week that allowed me to view the city in a different perspective.” Eduardo Mendoza, University of West Florida, Intern in Barcelona - Fall 2016

"Studying abroad completely changes your views of the world and how big and diverse it really is. It opens your eyes to different cultures - and your mind.” Antonette DePalma, Plymouth State University, Semester on the Italian Coast - Spring 2017

"Studying abroad is the best thing I've ever done. I learned things about myself that I never would have without my experience abroad. CISabroad allowed me especially enriching opportunities by creating events and encouraging us to explore beyond what the typical study abroad student normally would. The CISabroad team also went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly.” Rachel Marino, Quinnipiac University, Semester in Florence - Fall 2016

At CISabroad, we know you want to get into the local scene. With our La Vida Local program, you’ll experience local culture and life while participating in activities and organized events. Dive into it – that’s what study abroad is about!

Lead by our team of dedicated, ears-to-the-ground site directors, our La Vida Local cultural series lets you get into the local culture so you can make friends, explore local delights, see wellknown historic sites (and those sought-after hidden gems), and understand the issues important to the people you are living with. Group activities combine with more focused cultural encounters and reflections so you can experience the local environment – and not just as a tourist! Share your experiences with fellow students Engage with local students and the community Compare cultures at home and abroad Translate your new experiences and skills onto your resume 

"I would recommend anyone thinking about studying abroad that they participate in a homestay, because it really helps to be fully immersed in the native language of the country. Plus, since my experience with a homestay family was so wonderful, I can now say I have a second family that lives 5,000 miles away from me!” Dominic Di Franco, Metropolitan State University of Denver Semester in Perugia - Spring 2016

OCAL "Studying abroad in Costa Rica through CISabroad was the best decision of my life! Some highlights of my trip were seeing baby sea turtles hatch in Tortuguero, learning to surf in Tamarindo, and snorkeling in Panama with my marine biology class. I also loved getting to know my host family and the awesome site director, Lisa. Thank you, CIS, for changing my life!” Alli Evans, Ohio University, Semester in Costa Rica - Fall 2016 (Alumni Ambassador)

"I never expected that there would be so many group activities and day trips. I knew there were a few weekend trips, but I always felt like I had something to do if there wasn't anything going on in Barcelona (even though there always is). These days were a great time to meet people and bond with the people you already knew even more.” Cailyn Adisano, Saint Francis College, Semester in Barcelona Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona - Spring 2017 (Alumni Ambassador)

"O ur excursions with our site director were a chance for all of us to be together and have fun. We absolutely loved our site director and we all got along like family, so it was nice to have those bonding times provided by CISabroad.” Kylie Freitas, Bay Path University Semester in Greece Spring 2017 (Alumni Ambassador)

GUARANTEED SUPPORT:

GUARANTEED CULTURE:

GUARANTEED ACADEMICS:

Before, during, and after your time abroad, you’ll have the support of a dedicated Program Advisor to help guide you through the process.

We want you to “live the local life,” so our very own La Vida Local series is built into each of our programs! You’ll see where the locals eat, shop, and spend time – by the time you return home, you’ll have a unique understanding of the history, environment, and culture in your host country.

"This program made me realize that there is a whole world to explore, a million other people to meet, and a dozen different languages I want to learn. I unlocked a new side of me and there is no limit to my potential in life. On a serious note, I found myself redefining my goals in life and what career I want to pursue."

JANUARY ABROAD Spend your winter break abroad - and on the beach if you want. Studying abroad during January can be an amazing way to see many places at once. Only CISabroad offers exciting multi-country options for January! Why choose CISabroad? Our GREAT PEOPLE! We offer:

GUARANTEED SUPPORT:

GUARANTEED CULTURE:

GUARANTEED ACADEMICS:

Before, during, and after your time abroad, you’ll have the support of a dedicated Program Advisor to help guide you through the process. Our goal is a quick response to your questions before you go and an even faster response while you’re on site. Your Site Director is also there for you during your time abroad!

We want you to “live the local life,” so our very own La Vida Local series is built into each of our programs! You’ll see where the locals eat, shop, and spend time – by the time you return home, you’ll have a unique understanding of the history, environment, and culture in your host country.

What’s study abroad without the “study” part? Good news – we have hundreds of options for classes that will count toward your degree. Your dedicated Program Advisor will help you sort it out before you go, so that you’ll be sure to get the credit you need (and deserve) when you come back.

"As a college student, I find myself in a bubble worrying about my classes, research work, and extracurricular activities. Studying abroad allowed me to pop that bubble, leave all my worries behind, and immerse myself into new cultures. The best part of a J-term study abroad was that all the fun was packed in a span of three weeks. I was never bored and was ready to explore the next new city." Lakshmi Narayanam, Saint Joseph’s University, January Europe and Islam - January 2017

In each city, our professors brought the literature and arts we studied about in the classroom to life when we visited museums, operas, and went on neighborhood tours. My study abroad adventure was made complete by a great group of friends. We keep in touch to this day, even if we're half a world apart."

Your internship will take place in and around Honolulu, the state’s capital and most populous city. Honolulu is a major hub for international business and hosts a large diversity of cuisines, cultures and traditions. Enjoy the connectivity of a modern city with easy access to outdoor adventures.

THE FINE PRINT

(AKA POLICIES)

The following policies and procedures, established by the Center for International Studies (CISabroad), are important to you as a candidate seeking to study/intern abroad. Reading and understanding them are crucial. If you have any questions about the policies and procedures, please do not hesitate to contact us for a thorough explanation! Once accepted to a CISabroad program, you will receive the complete CISabroad policy handbook. Thanks for reading!

Transfer of Academic Credit and Records Ideally, your study abroad program will allow you to take courses abroad that will fulfill graduation requirements at your home university. Because CISabroad works only with recognized institutions, there should be no difficulty arranging the transfer of credit back to your home school. That said, advanced planning is vital to ensure that both your home university and your host institution have approved your course selection before your departure. As part of the application process, CISabroad requires that you receive written approval from your school’s study abroad advisor, academic advisor, or academic dean for all the courses you wish to take on the course selection section of the application. In order to transfer credit back to your home institution, the courses you take abroad must meet the requirements of your home school. To determine transferability, your study abroad advisor (or academic advisor) will want to see descriptions of the courses you intend to take. CISabroad can provide these details to you, electronically in most cases, or in printed form. After you have completed your internship or study abroad experience and have made all of the appropriate payments, your home institution will be issued a performance evaluation (internship abroad only) or official transcript from the host school (study abroad only). This will normally be issued about 2-3 months after completion of the program. You should expect this process to take longer than in the U.S. Please keep in mind that your records will not be released if you have any outstanding financial obligations to the host institution or CISabroad.

Refund Policy Because CISabroad makes financial commitments on your behalf well in advance of the program start date, refunds can only be made in certain cases. For a full refund of the study abroad program fee, less any deposits, cancellation must be made to CISabroad in writing no later than 60 days before the start date of the program to which you have applied. Should you decide to defer to another study term, any deposits paid may be transferred to that term, but will not be refunded. For a full refund of the internship abroad program fee, less any deposits, cancellation must be made to CISabroad in writing before the internship placement interview.

Passport and Visa In all countries, you will be required to possess a current passport. If you do not have a passport, you should begin the process soon, as it may take up to six weeks. If you already have a passport, please make sure that it has not expired and will be valid for at least six months after the completion of your program. With regard to visas and permits of stay, CISabroad will provide you with the appropriate instructions and counseling as part of the pre-departure services offered. Be advised that you may incur some fees in the visa application process, and you will need to pay these directly to the issuing consulate. If you are not a citizen of the United States, please check with the embassy of the country you intend to study in to determine if you will need a visa during your studies.

Program Fee Coverage The program fees listed for all CISabroad programs include: Full-time tuition and fees Housing Medical and accident insurance CISabroad support services before,  during, and after the program Academic advising Financial aid counseling Assistance with travel arrangements Pre-departure orientation Airport pick-up University orientation On-site support Official transcript Program fees do not include: Airfare Housing damage deposit Meals (unless otherwise specified) Visa and passport fees Spending money Books and supplies (unless otherwise  specified)
