Winter Application

 How to Apply

Students who are NOT applying for the CYA Spring Semester or Full Year Program,  please complete the Winter Session Application Form and follow the instructions below.

Students who are applying, or are already enrolled at CYA  for the Spring semester need not submit a separate Winter Session application. Please click here for more information.

CYA employs a rolling admissions policy. Since applications are considered only as long as space is available, CYA strongly encourages early application.  When space is limited and there are two or more similarly qualified applicants, preference will be given to the earlier applicant(s). Early application is, therefore, strongly recommended.

  • Letter of Academic Reference  (ONLY if a transcript from a school of record is required)
A physician’s statement is not part of the application documentation, but a check-up prior to going overseas is highly recommended. Participants are required to carry medical insurance valid for Greece.
