COVID-19 CCE Updates
Updated April 22, 2021

All CCE decisions were made with the idea in mind that while most of our student population are not among those most susceptible to the effects of the virus, we feel it is important to be mindful of the role we play in the broader global community as potential carriers who could be spreading the virus to the communities we were slated to visit or transmitting it back to our home communities.

CCS400
At this time, EVERYONE is still required to take CCS400, so please plan on signing up for the course.  We understand that CCS400 will need to be different for certain groups of students to accommodate the changes, and the university is actively working on this.   

Accommodations
Is there an online option for CCE courses?

Class engagement in CCE courses is an essential part of preparation for immersion.  While the university may mandate campus-wide changes in instructional delivery methods due to health and safety concerns, students should plan on attending all in person classes, in person.

For students with a documented medical diagnosis that would make in-person attendance prohibitive, formal accommodations may be requested by contacting Marty Bledsoe at mbledsoe@carrollu.edu



Fall 2021 CCEs - Carroll Courses

At this time, Carroll University is preparing to resume all CCE travel beginning Fall of 2021.  Students applying to Carroll Course CCEs should make their selections with the understanding that travel (and any associated expenses) will be an expected component of course completion should conditions allow.  However, the health and safety of our students and global partners remain our top priority.  As such, Carroll University may modify or cancel the travel portion of any course after a thorough evaluation of risk closer to the point of departure. An announcement will be made July 31st regarding intention for travel, therefore we encourage students to continue checking their PioMail Outlook inbox to ensure they do not miss important information.  The July 31st decision is necessary so that faculty members can finalize the details of the course accordingly before the start of the semester.
 
  • Our University will make travel decisions based on a variety of resources, including but not limited to:
  • Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization
  • Department of State Travel Advisories (Levels 3 and 4 do not travel)
  • International and domestic providers we work with on the ground
  • Vaccination, quarantine and testing requirements for varying regions

In the event that restrictions due to Covid-19 prohibit travel for fall 2021 Carroll Course CCEs, the $100 deposit will automatically be retained as a course fee. This course fee will cover expenses related to providing supplementary experiences to the classroom including speakers, virtual experiences and other enhancements. Any additional funds paid towards travel fees will be fully refunded to the student.


Fall 2021 CCEs - Study Abroad

At this time, Carroll University is preparing to resume all CCE travel beginning Fall of 2021.  Students applying should make their selections with the understanding that travel (and any associated expenses) will be an expected component of course completion should conditions allow.  However, the health and safety of our students and global partners remain our top priority.  As such, Carroll University may modify or cancel the travel portion of any course after a thorough evaluation of risk closer to the point of departure.

Summer 2021 CCEs - Carroll Courses
In-person immersion has been canceled for all three courses.  Professors will work to bring extra experiences to the classroom.  The course cost is $100 to be used for the extra experiences.  Summer credit costs apply and are factored in the total cost on the brochures.  For student's who qualify for the CCE award, we factor the summer credit cost into the award.

Summer 2021 CCEs - Study Abroad
Summer study abroad programs for Summer 2021 have been cancelled due to the unpredictability of travel safety. Some providers will offer virtual opportunities; the Office of Global Education (contact: mmbaker@carrollu.edu) can work with students to figure out what will be the best option in fulfilling a CCE virtually.   A decision regarding travel for summer II and summer III study abroad CCEs is still being determined.


Carroll Course CCEs with Canceled Travel -  Frequently Asked Questions
  • Will I receive CCE credit?
    • Yes, if you successfully complete your on-campus CCE course work for the fall 2020 semester, then your CCE requirement is complete, no need for future travel.
    • Please note that the travel portion is not an additional requirement, this semester’s CCE courses simply do not include travel.
  • What if I want to take the same CCE course again in the future, so that I can travel?
    • Not all of the CCE courses offered this year will be offered again next year, so for some classes taking the same course may not be possible.
  • Will I receive priority to take the course and travel when travel is possible?
    • Due to the uncertainty of travel, number of students who need to complete the CCE requirement, and the number of courses that we are anticipating will run, we cannot give you priority at this time.
  • Can I travel on the same CCE course next year without completing the course beforehand?
    • No, you must take the course before travel in a future semester.
  • Can I audit the course?
    • This will be determined on a case by case basis at the time of the course.
  • Do I need to take CCS 400?
    • Yes, you still need to complete CCS400 to graduate.  We understand that this course will have to look different in order to accommodate the changes from this semester.
  • What happens with the CCE award?
    • The CCE award is based off the cost of travel and your Estimated Family Contribution calculated by FAFSA.  The CCE award will be taken off your account, due to travel charges being refunded.  If, you decide to take a second CCE in the future, your CCE award may be different from what it was.  This is because it is based on the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) calculated by FAFSA for the year that coincides with your CCE.  The amount may also be based on demand for financial assistance in each academic year.
  • Will I receive my money back?
    • You will not be refunded your $100 deposit.  This money will be used to bring additional experiences to the classroom now that travel has been canceled, 
      similar to how an art or lab course would have a charge for additional supplies and experiences. Any amount you paid beyond $100 will be refunded to you.  You can expect this refund in the form of a check. The check will be mailed to your permanent address on file with the University. 
  • Can I drop the course and take a Carroll course CCE in a different semester because I want to travel?
    • While we are trying to offer additional classes and seating in spring 2021, we do not recommend dropping your fall 2020 course to take a future course. Because the COVID-19 situation is constantly changing, we cannot guarantee what travel will look like in the future, and the number of seats we will be albe to offer if we can travel.  We want to ensure you get CCE credit
