CCSA Short-Term Application Process

Belmont Online Study Abroad Application Process: CCSA Short-Term Programs

The Belmont application is required for all Belmont students who wish to participate in a study abroad program.  Students participating on a program with CCSA, a study abroad consortium of which Belmont is the host institution, will also need to complete an application process for that program on their website, www.ccsa.cc.  You may complete these applications concurrently if you wish. 

**Belmont students are not eligible to apply for CCSA winter programs due to the start date of Belmont’s spring semester.**
