What’s New for Summer & Fall 2020

Studying abroad may not be a new idea, but its definition is constantly evolving. Our field continues to grapple with how to increase study abroad’s accessibility to diverse student populations with different financial needs and to majors with rigid requirements. Facing these challenges head-on requires flexibility and the willingness to try something new. We can’t do it alone.

Student and university feedback drives CEA’s program development. This is what sets us apart: our desire to be responsive to student needs, to put our university partners first, and to create real solutions that make a real difference. These values are at the heart of who we are and what we do.

Virtual Internship Program

CEA is proud to announce the launch of the Virtual Internship Program, available in Summer 2020 and Fall 2020. Virtual Internship students will complete an online 3-credit internship course in conjunction with their virtual 120 hour internship placement. The program includes:

  • Professional career coaching by NACE certified internship coaches
  • A NACE-aligned internship course that blends face-to-face live meetings with students and locally-based internship mentors with online coursework reflecting best practices in online teaching and learning
  • Minimum 120-hour virtual internship abroad placement
  • Skill Survey Career Competency Report highlighting career skill strengths based on internship experience outcomes

We are excited to introduce this new global option! Contact a CEA Enrollment Advisor or Internship Coach for more information.

Fall 2020 Programs

In efforts to provide flexibility for universities, students, and their families to make decisions regarding participation in a Fall 2020 study abroad program, CEA has modified many of our Fall 2020 program dates. Changes include:

    Program Dates and Deadlines
    • All CEA Study Center programs, as well as many partner programs, have delayed program start dates and withdrawal dates. These new dates are reflected on the individual programs on the CEA website.
    • Extending the withdrawal date allows students and their families additional time and peace of mind to evaluate their fall program options.
    • By moving the start date, we are able to facilitate programs under 90-days in length. This, in many cases, eliminates the need for a student visa for U.S. passport holders and creates flexibility for students and families who would otherwise have to navigate the visa application process.
    Prices
    • Many of CEA’s program prices have been reduced to reflect the shorter program length. Revised pricing is reflected on each specific program page.
    • Keep in mind, there are some programs that did not benefit from a pricing reduction, particularly many offered through local university partners where program dates were inflexible.
    • Students who’ve already applied at a higher price point will benefit from any reduced program price.
    Courses
    • Some of our CEA Study Center course lists have been modified to accommodate the changes to the aforementioned dates. These updates are now reflected on the CEA website.
    • For our partner [or direct enroll] programs, course information may continue to evolve as we work with our partner universities abroad. We will ensure our course lists for these programs are updated as we learn more.
    Virtual Internship Program
    • We are excited to make our Virtual Internship Program available to Fall 2020 students. This program will be available in two 6-week sessions. Virtual Internship students will complete an online 3-credit internship course in conjunction with their virtual 120 hour internship placement.

CEA Enrollment Advisors and Internship Coaches will notify current students of these updates and advise them of their options. You may also reference program pages for up-to-date information. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to your CEA contact for additional information. We’re here to help.

FAQ's

Why did CEA make the decision to change the Fall 2020 program dates?

During this unprecedented time, we recognize that students may need more time to make a decision regarding their participation in a Fall 2020 program abroad. As a result, we have adjusted the start dates and withdrawal deadlines for many of our programs, giving students more time to plan for their time abroad. Additionally, the later start date means that U.S. passport holders will not have to secure a student visa for their participation in that program. This reduces the student’s expenses and also provides an added layer of flexibility as students will not have to navigate the time intensive visa application process.

If my university cancels their Fall 2020 programs will I be able to still study abroad through CEA?

CEA urges all students to follow the policies and directives of their home institution and to consult with their university advisors and families to make the best decision about their plans for the Fall 2020 semester.

When do I need to make a decision about participation in my CEA Fall 2020 program?

Withdrawal dates for many of our programs have been adjusted and are reflected on the program page on the CEA website as well as in the students’ MyCEA Portals. Students should work closely with their Enrollment Advisor if they have questions and/or concerns about their program’s withdrawal date.

Is there a chance that CEA’s Fall 2020 programs will be cancelled?

Over the coming months, CEA will be closely monitoring the most up-to-date information and data including, but not limited to, health statements from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, as well as consulting with a variety of other reputable sources and experts. We will continually review all these resources while working with the appropriate public health officials to provide the most up-to-date information to the CEA community. We will make any necessary changes to our programs to safeguard the well-being of all our students.

If I am not required to obtain a student visa for my Fall 2020 program, are there any special considerations I should know about traveling abroad on a tourist visa?

U.S. Passport holders can spend up to 90 days in the Schengen zone* on a tourist visa. [Note: this does not apply to non-U.S. passport holders]. This rule allows for 90 days within a rolling 180 day period. This means that students cannot travel within the Schengen zone before the program as those extra days will count towards the 90 day allowance. Students must fly home on or before the 90th day, OR they must travel to a country outside of the Schengen zone and fly home from there.

*Schengen zone includes the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

Please consult the U.S. State Department’s website for further information: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/before-you-go/travelers-with-special-considerations/schengen.html

The UK, Ireland, and Morocco are not part of the Schengen zone and thus may be good options for travel and departure after the program ends.

What's included in the cost of the Virtual Internship Program?

Since the Virtual Internship program will take place in the comfort of your home, the inclusions differ from those of our standard study and intern abroad programs. This program includes tuition for the online internship course, the customized virtual internship placement, pre-program interview coaching and orientation, ongoing career exploration and coaching, and a Skill Survey Career Competency Report. This program does not include housing, excursions, cultural activities, or other onsite amenities. Please note that it is expected that students have access to reliable internet and a computer.

I have been accepted to a Fall 2020 program, but I am hesitant to make payments towards my program. What are my options?

CEA has been monitoring the unprecedented effects of COVID – 19 for all of our upcoming Fall 2020 Study and Intern Abroad programs. We have adjusted the withdrawal dates for many of our programs allowing students more time to make decisions, and these withdrawal dates are reflected on the program page on the CEA website as well as in the students’ MyCEA Portals. Students should work closely with their Enrollment Advisor if they have questions and/or concerns about their payment due dates and/or program’s withdrawal date.

Will CEA be offering any promotions, grants, or scholarships for the Fall 2020 term?

CEA is offering affiliate grants and travel voucher promotions for the Fall 2020 term as normal. Students can check our Funding Options page for any current offers as well as their MyCEA Portal, or work with their Enrollment Advisor to review any discounts they may be eligible for.

If I decide to withdraw from my Fall 2020 program, will I receive a refund?

Per our Standard Withdrawal Policy, students who request to withdraw in writing on, or prior to, their program Withdrawal Date are not responsible for final payment and may be entitled to a refund of payments already made to CEA, minus the application fee and program confirmation fee.

Application fees are always non-refundable, and program confirmation fees are non-refundable except in the case where the applicant is not academically eligible for the program.

As program withdrawal dates approach, we encourage students to make timely decisions about their program participation and maintain regular communicate with their Enrollment Advisor. Students that withdraw after the program withdrawal date will be reviewed on a case by case basis and are subject to being charged or monies paid for incurred costs.

If CEA cancels Fall 2020 programs, will I receive a refund for payments made towards my program?

If CEA makes the decision to cancel Fall 2020 programs, students will be refunded all program payments* made towards a Fall 2020 program. Refunds can fall under one or both refund plans listed below. Students should contact their CEA Enrollment Advisor if unsure which plan(s) applies to them.

    1. CEA Direct Payments (Student paid CEA Study Abroad fees directly to CEA)
    • The refund will be sent to the permanent address on file in the students’ MyCEA portals.
    • The refund will come in the form of a paper check made out to the student and can take up to 10 - 12 weeks to receive.
    2. University Payments (Student paid CEA Study Abroad fees through their home institution/study abroad office)
    • Please contact the study abroad office for updates on refund payments.
    *Refund Exclusions:
    • The non-refundable $95 application fee will be deducted from the total refund amount.
    • The non-refundable $95 application fee can be applied to a future term with CEA.

Students should reach out to their CEA Enrollment Advisor if they have any questions or concerns about the refund process. Students can find the contact information for their CEA Enrollment Advisor in their MyCEA portals.
