Passport & Chinese Visa

All travelers are required to obtain a passport before departing the United States. Once accepted to the program, students should immediately apply for a passport. To apply for a passport, click here. If you already hold a current passport, students should ensure that their passport is valid for a least six months from the conclusion of the program. 
All non-Chinese citizens are required to obtain a Chinese visa before entering China. The program has made arrangements with a reputable visa service in Houston, TX and will coordinate a group visa application process in March of each year. Chinese visa instructions will be emailed to all participants shortly after the February 15th application deadline. Immediately following the first CSP orientation in March, we will review program participants' Chinese visa applications, and send as a group to the visa service in Houston, TX. A current and valid passport will be required. Applications will be processed at the Chinese Consulate in Houston and will take approximately 2 weeks to process.

Housing Accomodations

The program provides double-accommodation housing located on-campus or near campus. Housing is modern and provides air conditioning, western toilets, and modern facilities. Students may select a roommate in advance. Those who do not select a roommate will be randomly paired with another student of the same gender. 



Transportation & Group Flight
Airfare between the United States and China is not included in the program fee. Students are responsible for making independent flight arrangements. Some years, faculty/staff flight info will be shared with the students, so they have the opportunity to get tickets on the same flight as other CSP participants and arrive together. The following airlines may offer 1-stop itineraries: Delta Airlines, United Airlines, American Airlines, Air CanadaKorean Airlines

Local Transportation
In Shenzhen, students access the Shenzhen Metro, the Hong Kong MRT, and ferries from the Shenzhen Shekou Terminal.
