You can get University Credit!

Your classroom will travel with you, wherever you go. We believe that we are always learning, and that we enter every experience with a learners posture. Students should be prepared to have an ever changing classroom. Get ready to learn on the shores of Shoal Lake, in a classroom at a camp, on the top of a mountain or volcano, in villages around the world, and on the streets of the inner city.

All students that meet the CMU baccalaureate entrance requirements can receive up to 18 credit hours (full year), and up to 12 credit hours (one semester) for studies at CMU. Transfer to other universities depends on the class, school and program.
