Affordable Semester Options for Study Abroad

What is an Affordable Semester Option?

A myth about studying abroad for a semester is that it will cost exorbitantly more than a semester attending CNU.  For a CNU In-State student living on campus, the estimated cost for a semester (tuition, housing, meal plan, and telecommunication fee) is about $13,500.  For an Out-of-State student living on campus, the estimated cost for a semester (tuition, housing, meal plan, and telecommunication fee) is about $20,000.  

An affordable option is one that is close to the cost of one semester at CNU, based on In-State or Out-of-State status.  The options will require additional costs, such as the airfare and personal expenses.  

The following programs, both CNU and Non-CNU, are considered affordable semester options for In-State and Out-of-State students:
