The City
Rome, Italy is also known as the "Eternal City". Discover Italian culture and language. Walk in the paths of emperors, popes, artists, and saints. Foster creativity, adaptability, and independence. Encounter the universal Church and take part in Catholic celebrations with pilgrims from around the word. Be in awe of your ancient classroom by taking unique courses not offered at CU.

The University
John Cabot University (JCU) is an American liberal arts institution located in the Trastevere district of Rome.  The University is centrally located and within walking distance from historical landmarks and bustling piazzas. Approximately 1200 students are enrolled each semester, with about half the population consisting of visiting students like you.

Costs


Financial Aid
Participants pay tuition, room, and fees directly to Creighton University and receive the equivalent at John Cabot. Students will be responsible for meals, visa, insurance, and all traveling expenses.  If eligible, institutional aid and federal financial aid are portable. However, once the Creighton aid is subtracted from the total bill, there must be at least $3,000 that is paid by federal aid or out of pocket.  Please check with the CU Financial Aid Office for specific inquiries. Participants are also required to purchase Creighton's insurance for international activity (purchased through GEO). 

Housing
You will live in apartment-style, secure dormitories near the main campus. Your roommates may be degree-seeking and/or visiting students. Students will pay Creighton at the Kiewit freshman standard double rate that can be found on the Creighton housing website. Learn more about John Cabot University Housing here.
