Requirements & Instructions

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.

Due to the fluidity of the COVID-19 situation, CYA reserves the right to cancel a summer course by May 15.

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. The application form includes no question on any of these matters, and photographs need not be sent before admission has been granted.

Important Information to Consider

All applicants should have a passport, valid for three months after their intended return, or have made an application for one in order to receive it in time for travel.

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.
