This year students will have simplified academic options to qualify for the study abroad excursions. In an attempt to create the most flexibility, and to streamline the registration process, we will only offer the Independent Study option to ensure equity for students and faculty.

A.      Students will take a 1 credit Independent study in the spring from any SA faculty member. The 1 credit Independent study courses will be signature registration only, so SA faculty will need to sign registration forms to enroll their students.  This “Independent Study only” option will ensure equity for students and faculty.  The registration for this 1-credit course will not be available until the spring semester.

B.      All study abroad students will have 3-4 mandatory spring semester meetings prior to travel. These meetings will provide an opportunity to discuss cultural and travel expectations, release forms, logistics, and to team build. Each trip will have a dedicated course shell in D2L to house materials and act as a communication hub.




We are so pleased to announce that we have ten $1000 scholarships available for our Fully Pell eligible students.  If you think you may qualify and want to pursue this opportunity, please contact Jo-ellen.becco@ppcc.edu or Robin.schofield@ppcc.edu  (Process and Acknowledgement forms available)


Prior to making a deposit through EF, students should connect with a SA faculty member (email and phone #’s available above) or Jo Ellen Becco (719 502-3110) to understand the contract they are entering with EF Tours.   Students also need to be in good standing (academically and behaviorally) to enroll which we will clear through the appropriate channels. 

 Students can make a non-refundable deposit of $100 if they also enroll in the automatic payment plan through EF. (Monthly payments going directly to EF)


Students can make a non-refundable deposit of $250 and make periodic payments on their own.  (This payment includes the travel insurance payment)

4.     Explore your options for payment plans and have a strategy for saving or earning enough money to pay for your adventure (Keep in mind there will be some additional costs involved with travel-baggage fees, passport cost, souvenirs, incidentals, some uncovered meals, etc.)
