    The Cooperative Center for Study Abroad is a consortium of 24 schools throughout the nation with study abroad programs and internships in English-speaking countries. CCSA offers interesting classes in a variety of disciplines so that students can choose courses specific to their academic needs. Courses are taught by professors of universities that are members of CCSA, so students can choose to participate in a program with a Saint Francis University professor or take a class with a professor from another university.

  • Past Experiences

    "Traveling to Dublin, Ireland and London, England was an absolutely amazing experience I will never forget. I never thought I'd see New Years Eve fireworks in London while taking a psychology class. It is definitely possible to have fun and learn on a CCSA trip!" 
    - Charity Eckman, psychology and occupational therapy major ('07/'08)

    "My experience in Australia was amazing because I earned credits from an ultimate classroom setting of scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef, traipsing through the Cairnes rainforests, and hanging out at Sydney Bay. Also, I met and formed lasting friendships with a terrific group of students from across the US."
    - Jill Krempecki, physician assistant sciences and Spanish major ('07)

    Financial Aid

    Students may apply for any student loans for which they would normally have eligibility. It is imperative that students applying for financial aid apply by specific deadline dates in order to facilitate the financial aid process. The financial aid office will assist students needing information about financial aid.
