Programs in Costa Rica 

Live, intern, and study in San José, the cosmopolitan capital of Costa Rica that is bursting at the seams with museums, restaurants, shopping malls, and nightclubs. Outdoor adventure awaits you in Costa Rica, a country renowned for its eco-tourism. Immerse yourself in the culture and Spanish language, or study Tropical Marine Biology or Ecology to make the most of the "rich coast!"

How do I apply?

Prior to applying directly to the program through CIS Abroad, the Office of Global Opportunities recommends that all students complete the mandatory OHIO Foreign Study Checklist (FSC). The FSC helps students determine how credits from abroad will transfer, the total cost of their program, how they can apply financial and scholarships, and outlines health and safety resources. 

Start the FSC by setting up an appointment with Ellie Koewler, CIS Abroad Advisor in the OHIO Office of Global Opportunities by clicking here
