Paths to the CIL

What could your CIL pathway look like? It depends on when you enroll in the program and how you choose to satisfy the program requirements.

Here are a few ways that you could progress through the program. These are only a few examples. We encourage you to make a map of your own!

Example one:

Certificate in International Learning path option 

Example two:

Certificate in International Learning path option two 

Example three:

Important dates and deadlines

September 30 – Enrollment deadline (enroll by September 30 of your third-year)

For June grads:

March 1 – Capstone projects due

April 1 – All CIL claims due in CIL database

For November grads:

August 1 – Capstone projects due

September 1 – All CIL claims due in CIL database

Make claims in the CIL database

Once you’ve enrolled in the CIL, you have a profile in the CIL database. This is where you can track your progress and make claims for requirements that you have completed.

You are responsible to make claims for components of the CIL that you have completed. We will not know that you have completed a requirement unless you make a claim.

Once you make a claim, the CIL office will review and either approve it, ask for more information, or deny it.  Please review the database claim instructions to ensure your claims are submitted correctly.
