Semester in Paris
Semester in Paris
This program is currently under reconstruction.
We hope to return with a new and improved program during the
2016-2017 Academic Year.
Please email email@example.com to be added to the mailing list.
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.
Passports and Visas
Participants are responsible for obtaining their own passports. 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: http://iafdb.travel.state.gov/
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. Students are responsible for maintaining
full-time status while abroad in order to remain in student visa
status. If you live in or near the Bay Area, you can obtain visa
information by visting: http://usa.campusfrance.org/en/1.html
