CUPA Immersion Program Dates

CUPA Immersion students are directly matriculated in the French university system. Consequently, the program calendars for spring and fall are dependent on those of CUPA’s French partners. French universities finalize their dates much later than what American students are accustomed to, which is why CUPA publishes its official calendar mid-spring for the upcoming fall semester and mid-fall for the following spring semester.
