Italy in the Fall

Note: CIMBA is no longer accepting applications for Fall 2021. We hope to see you in Spring, Summer, or Fall 2022! 

We understand it’s important for you to make an informed decision about where you study overseas and what program you select. At any stage of your admissions process, we encourage you to email or call our U.S. office at 319-335-0920. Our staff and alumni office workers are available Monday through Friday to answer questions about applying to study abroad. We can walk you through course offerings, tuition, room and board, financial aid, scholarships, and more. If you’re ready to apply, go ahead and get started!

Application Date and Process

Our suggested application date is June 15; however, applications will be considered after this date if space is available. Please review our CIMBA and Your University page to see any special procedures required by your home university before applying to CIMBA.

Course Offerings

To ensure these classes transfer back to your home institution explore our course offerings. We post syllabi as we receive them for upcoming sessions.




For Fall 2021, we are happy to announce an automatic $500 off the cost of tuition for any new applicant! Students who had previously applied but were displaced by the pandemic will receive an additional amount on top of this. The cost for the program can be found on our Program Costs & Payment page. The price you see for your program includes tuition, room and board, dining services, laundry, a twice-weekly cleaning service, and more. Airfare and personal travel are separate, but we’ll give you advice on how to find the best fare. Learn more about our program cost, financial aid, payment plans, and scholarships below.



Awards and Scholarships

CIMBA offers several scholarships and awards in addition to your current financial aid. The CIMBA financial award and scholarship deadline for fall has been extended to June 15. Please submit all required material by 5pm central time. You can apply for CIMBA financial awards even if you have not finished your application to the program or been accepted.
