The California State University International Programs
CSU, Chico is proud to offer a wide variety of study abroad options for our students. There were over 400 CSU, Chico students, undergraduate and graduate, that studied abroad in over thirty-five countries around the world in the 2014/2015 academic school year! They each represented every major of study at Chico State. The Study Abroad Office and information about its programs can be found on the Chico State Study Abroad website.
Developing intercultural communication skills and international understanding among its students is a vital mission of The California State University. Since its inception in 1963, the CSU International Programs has contributed to this effort by providing qualified students an affordable opportunity to continue their studies abroad for a full academic year. More than 20,000 CSU students have taken advantage of this unique study option.
International Programs participants earn resident academic credit at their CSU campuses while they pursue full-time study at a host university or special study center abroad. The International Programs serves the needs of students in over 100 designated academic majors. Affiliated with more than 50 recognized universities and institutions of higher education in 18 countries, the International Programs also offers a wide selection of study abroad destinations and learning environments.

Students participating in International Programs pay CSU tuition and program fees, and are responsible for airfare, accommodations, meals and other personal expenses. Financial aid, with the exception of Federal Work-Study, is available to qualified students and limited scholarship opportunities are also available. Most International Programs require students to have upper-division standing at a CSU campus by the time of departure; several programs are open to sophomores or Graduate students. California Community College transfer students admitted to a CSU campus are eligible to apply (to select programs) directly from their community colleges. Students must possess a current cumulative grade point average of 2.75 or 3.0, depending on the program, and must fulfill all coursework prerequisites. Additional program information and application instructions can be found on our website at CSU International Programs website.
