Students live, eat, socialize, and study at the CIC, home to many international and some French students. Double occupancy dorm style rooms offer shared bathrooms. Common spaces include a lounge, large courtyard, library, and small cafe. Participation in the France-Cannes program offers CSB/SJU students full board (three meals a day, seven days a week) in the cafeteria.

Financial Considerations

During a semester abroad, CSB/SJU students pay the same tuition as if on campus. Instead of paying CSB/SJU Housing and Meal Plan, all students studying abroad pay an Education Abroad Program Fee. Find Program Fee information on the CSBSJU-Global Portal.

Students should plan early for a successful study abroad experience. Financial aid and scholarships may be available to help with program costs, but must be searched out well in advance.

Please note: to obtain the required visa to study on this program you will need to submit your visa application in person at a France VFS Visa Application Center. This is not included in your program fee.
