Program Provider Review & Selection Criteria

Per Executive Order 1081, all non-CSU, study abroad program providers must undergo a review and selection process before providing services for campuses. A Program Provider is defined as an organization that sponsors instructional programs abroad that are open to students from colleges and universities. The CSU, Chico Study Abroad Advisory Committee (SAAC) has been charged with the responsibility for vetting program providers to ensure quality, safety, and affordability.
