Welcome back! Now that you have returned from an amazing learning experience abroad, you will find yourself facing many challenges as you adjust back to your life in the U.S. The adjustment challenges that can be experienced by returned study abroad students is defined as reverse culture shock. We encourage you to do some research regarding reverse culture shock symptoms. In an effort to assist you with this adjustment back to life in the U.S., the International Programs office would like to offer three ways to help you readjust to the process of returning home and sharing your study abroad experience:

  • Attend our Re-entry workshop
  • Substitute your courses to get your credits transferred
  • Share you experience with CI by becoming a global ambassador of the study abroad programs
  • Welcome international students to the CI campus. You were once an international student and you are a valuable resource to international students who are entering CI

If you would like more information regarding any of these options please email international@csuci.edu.
