High School & Pre-College Programs Abroad

Epic Summer. College Credit. Lifelong Impact.

College Credit and Transcripts

CET partners with a local university at each program site abroad. Upon successful completion of the program coursework, you will receive a transcript jointly issued by the partner institution and CET. The transcript lists each course taken with the corresponding grade earned and total contact hours. Credit transfer to a US college or university is at the discretion of that institution. Check with the admissions or study abroad office to ask about credit transfer once you know which school you will attend. Upon request, CET will send an official copy of the transcript to the college you designate.

College-level Academics

CET programs focus on themes relevant to our locations and of interest to high school/pre-college students. The centerpiece of each program is a lower-division college course designed to provide a broad introduction to the theme of the program.  Courses utilize the local context and incorporate many opportunities for learning outside the formal classroom.  Language classes emphasize oral proficiency and support immersion in the local culture.  The coursework provides students the opportunity and challenge of navigating academics at the college level in a caring, supportive environment surrounded by their peers.

Expert Faculty and Networks

Courses are taught by the same university-level faculty and teachers who work with students on CET’s college study abroad programs.  They are able to adjust their approach to meet the needs of younger students and provide an academic experience that helps prepare students for their undergraduate years.  Our academic team is well-connected to local resources and can utilize their extensive contacts to enrich student learning and develop content to meet student interests.  Faculty and teachers also serve as informal mentors and advisers as students explore options for further academic pursuit.
