Program Types

CNU Programs are organized and led by CNU faculty.  The programs may vary each year based on the proposed programs from the faculty leaders.

CNU Exchange Programs are agreements for students to study at a partner university abroad, while paying CNU tuition & fees. Students pay locally for housing and meals.  The exchange partner may have campus housing available or make recommendations for housing options in the local community.  These programs do not have a CNU faculty or staff on site.  CNU does not regulate or control the policies, deadlines, or application requirements of the partner universities.

NON-CNU Programs, or external programs, are organized by a university or organization outside of CNU.  These programs must first be approved for transfer credit prior to completing the application to the outside organization or university.  CNU does not regulate or control the policies, deadlines, or selection process for external programs. 

All students MUST meet with the Study Abroad Office when applying to any Non-CNU program.

  • Non-CNU programs must be approved for credit transfer BEFORE applying to the program.  
  • Non-CNU programs have many programs available that may be approved for credit.  
  • All courses are individually reviewed by the CNU Acadmic Departments before specific course credit is approved.  
  • If you find a program not on our website, the Study Abroad Office and Registrar will need to review the accreditation of the university before approval is given.
