I have not completed my bachelor’s degree, can I still participate?
You must have secured your bachelor’s degree prior to beginning the CIEE Teach in China program. However, you can apply while your degree is in progress. If this is your case, please submit a letter from a university professor, advisor, or registrar confirming when you are expected to graduate. Please address your specific situation with CIEE staff.
Special note to December and spring graduates: If you’re an expected spring semester university graduate, you’re eligible to apply for the August program, and if you expect to graduate in December, you're eligible to apply for the February program. If your diploma is not available at the time of your application to CIEE please submit a letter from your academic advisor or university registrar that confirms you are on track to graduate in May. IMPORTANT: CIEE will need a copy of your diploma by early June/late December! If your school’s regular schedule to issue actual diplomas does not coincide with this deadline then upon request CIEE can provide you with a letter that has previously been successful to expedite this process. Without a copy of your diploma we are unable to obtain essential visa documents from the Chinese authorities that are required by the Embassy.
