Study Abroad

Contra Costa Community College District invites you to participate in our study abroad programs. Courses are taught by community college professors and may be UC and CSU transferable. Students can enjoy and learn from their valuable experiences in a foreign country, while accumulating course credits from their host college. Financial aid is available to students that qualify. This is a once in a lifetime chance for you to take classes overseas, gain academic credit and experience a different culture!
