Pre-Departure Guidance

From the moment they contact us, students have the full support of all our staff in helping them prepare for a successful study abroad experience at CYA.

Our North American office is available to answer questions or concerns and to help students with any difficulties they may encounter. The Office of Academic Affairs can help them find appropriate courses and the Office of Student Affairs plans and sets up ways to accommodate any special needs. 

Once they have been accepted students are given a username and password so they can login and gain access to the Accepted Students Page, a comprehensive pre-departure information section. Along with information on financial and legal matters, this section has:

  • Online secondary forms (housing, medical, registration, ISIC card, etc.)
  • Visa Instructions (for semester students)
  • Greek Mobile Phone Guide
  • Pre-Departure Handbook.
  • Academic Calendars
  • Maps
