Tuition: Due to the short-term of the international summer program, students are strongly discouraged from modifying their course schedule once the Program begins. However, with the approval of the Program Director Leah Wortham, students may add/drop classes within 48 hours of the first day of the course. Students are required to use Cardinal Station to add/drop course(s); billing adjustments will occur automatically via Cardinal Station. In the event students withdraw from a course after the add/drop period, they will be responsible for 100% of tuition.









Students are responsible for their own travel arrangements between the United States and Poland. Post-pandemic, the cost of refundable tickets has come down considerably. We recommend that you consider making airline reservations and other travel plans that can be refunded.  There are regular flights to Warsaw from the U.S. and ground transportation from Warsaw to Kraków is convenient and inexpensive. Kraków's new international airport offers regular flights between selected U.S. and European cities. Ground transportation from other European cities to Kraków is also available at a reasonable price. American passport holders, visiting up to 90 days, do not need visas to enter Poland.

Students are responsible for their housing arrangements. In the past few years, students have declined CUA-arranged dormitory accommodations in favor of making their own housing arrangements. Students find this option more attractive, as they have greater control over housing costs and they may choose to share the costof a more spacious apartment with classmate(s) attending the program. Therefore, the Program will not provide pre-arranged student housing in the 2024 Summer.

Before entering into any housing agreements, students are advised to understand the terms of the agreement, including costs, amenities, and refund policy concerning deposits and other payments. Kraków is an ancient city, therefore rental properties may or may not offer air conditioning, elevators or wi-fi access as standard features. Students should seek accommodations convenient to the Krupnicza 33, Faculty of Law and Administration of the Jagiellonian University, where classes are held. Address: Krupnicza 33, 31-123 Kraków, Poland. 

The Program will provide a guide to accommodations in Kraków and Warsaw. Program faculty and staff will offer assistance to students, as they explore housing options.
