Program not currently being offered. Please check back for updates.





All participants will receive an International Student Identity Card (ISIC) with basic worldwide health and accident insurance. This policy is very limited and it is highly recommended that you have medical insurance that will cover more completely while abroad. If your insurance company will not cover you abroad or if you would like information on trip cancellation or baggage insurance, please contact ACCENT at 415/ 835-3744 or 800/869-9291.

Your passport must be valid for at least six months after your expected return to the U.S. If you do not already have a passport or want to renew your expired passport, you can visit the following website in order to find the location nearest you to apply for a passport:

A visa is required for U.S. citizens for the duration of the program. Please note that you can not apply for a student visa more than 90 days prior to the first day of your program, but that you must begin the process by registering with Campus France before you can make an appointment with the consulate under whose jurisdiction you belong. ACCENT will provide you with information which will assist you in completing the visa process, but obtaining the visa is the responsiblity of the individual student. CCSF and/or ACCENT can provide proof of enrollment/full-time status for the Consulate at the time of application.
