Requirements & Instructions

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

Students who are applying for, or who are already enrolled in the CYA 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.

A complete application consists of the following:

  • CYA Application
  • Statement of Study Abroad Approval/Credit Transfer (for those seeking credit) 
  • Official Transcript
  • One Academic Letter of Recommendation  (ONLY if a transcript from a school of record is required)

When your application is completed, it will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. As soon as a decision is made (typically within two weeks of completing your application), you will be notified by e-mail.

The Program does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, religion, sex, or national and ethnic origin. Photographs need not be sent before admission has been granted.

Important Information to Consider

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.
All applicants should have a passport, valid for three months after intended return, or have made an application for one.
