While CEA highly recommends living in our housing option provided, you also have the option to arrange independent housing. Are you dying to live in a specific Milanese neighborhood? Are you studying abroad with somebody you must have as your roommate? Independent housing could be the ticket for you. 

Use the online housing application form to request permission for this option no later than the application closure date. If your request is approved, you will receive a rebate for your housing payment. However, CEA will not provide you with any assistance setting up independent housing. Keep in mind, rebates are not granted to students who move out of their CEA housing or choose to pursue independent housing arrangements after the application closure date.

CEA Milan Center - Extension
CEA Milan Center - Extension

The CEA Milan Center–Extension was established to make internships more accessible to North American students. CEA Milan Center–Extension courses are designed to increase your understanding of the workplace culture in Milan and prepare you to leverage your international internship experience in the global workforce. CEA Study Center–Extension destinations also offer opportunity for niche academic programming and a small faculty-to-student ratio. After the successful completion of a session at the CEA Milan Center–Extension, students will receive a UNH transcript.  

Please note Academic Performance Reviews and staffing models for CEA Center–Extensions are modified to align with the scope of their programming. 


Courses taught at the CEA Milan Center–Extension have been designed in conjunction with, and approved by, the University of New Haven (UNH). UNH also approves faculty appointments. After the successful completion of a session at the CEA Milan Center–Extension, students will receive credit for their work from UNH. Additionally, UNH ensures standards for the academic facility meet the benchmarks established by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE), formerly known as the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. (NEASC), which approves the School of Record agreement.  

The University of New Haven oversees the entire approval process surrounding CEA Study Center–Extensions, which includes: faculty appointments, curriculum design, course approvals, course credit assignments, quality assurance, student assessment, and academic accommodation. 


Faculty at the CEA Milan Center–Extension carefully evaluate student work and progress throughout the academic session. When calculating final grades, instructors consider written and oral exercises, homework assignments, attendance, classroom participation, and exam performance. 

The following grading system is in use at the CEA Milan Center–Extension: 

CEA Grading Scale (Effective Spring 2017) 

Letter Grade 

Numerical Grade Low Range 

Numerical Grade High Range 

Percentage Range 

Quality Points 




97.0 – 100% 




94.0 – 96.9% 





90.0 – 93.9% 





87.0 – 89.9% 




84.0 – 86.0% 





80.0 – 83.9% 





77.0 – 79.9% 




74.0 – 76.9% 





70.0 – 73.9% 




60.0 – 69.9% 




0 – 59.9% 











Completion of a course is defined as a receipt of a letter grade (A+ to F) as opposed to Withdrawal or Incomplete. 

In order to determine a quality point ratio, each letter grade from a completed course is assigned a quality point value. The quality point value for each grade earned during a semester is multiplied by the number of semester hours assigned to that course. The sum of these points is the total number of quality points earned during the semester. It is divided by the number of semester hours completed to obtain the quality point ration (QPR).

  • Periodic homework assignments and final assessments will be administered 

  • Class attendance is mandatory and monitored by each professor. You may access your grades and attendance on your MyCEA Account.
