Study Abroad

Outside of San Pedro de Atacama, ChileWelcome to the Study Abroad Program at County College of Morris (CCM)! The mission of the Study Abroad Program is to provide students with access to a global education. CCM offers its students study abroad opportunities in 31 countries through the College Consortium for International Studies (CCIS). These pages will help you learn about the various programs CCM and CCIS jointly offer and understand the process of studying abroad.

Eligibility
The basic requirements for study abroad are at least 15 credits of completed course work and a minimum GPA of 2.5; however, some programs have more competitive requirements. Study abroad is not restricted to certain majors; students from almost any major find that they can study abroad and still earn credit towards graduation.
 
Getting Started
  1. Familiarize yourself with the Study Abroad Process and browse the CCIS website to get an idea of what’s involved in study abroad and where you may want to go.
  2. Download the Student Information Sheet for Study Abroad, fill it out, and meet with the study abroad advisor well in advance of your planned semester abroad. This allows time for the student and advisor to collaborate on completing the application process, choosing classes, arranging proper transfer of credit, and applying for any required visas. This meeting does not oblige the student to commit to studying abroad. It allows the advisor and student to discuss goals and objectives and the feasibility of the students’ desired programs & destinations.
  3. Once you and the advisor decide on a program, you will receive a Student Check-List to begin preparing for your semester abroad.
For questions, please do not hesitate to contact Professor James Hart, the Assistant Chairperson of the Languages & ESL Department and Study Abroad Advisor at jhart@ccm.edu or 973-328-2486.
