Program Details

California University Experience is a 7- or 12-day intensive program in which students have the opportunity to explore universities in California. It is our goal to help students feel empowered about their educational decisions. Through the program, students have an opportunity to attend seminars and workshops that will educate them on the American education system, and what is required to apply and enter a university in the U.S.

Participants must be 15-23 years old to attend CUE.


Contact for pricing on our programs. Cost does not include airfare or medical insurance. Included in the cost are meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), transportation (airport pick-up and drop-off, and transportation to all CUE events), and admission to universities and theme parks.

Housing and Meals

Housing and meals are provided throughout the duration of CUE. Participants stay in Azusa Pacific University residence halls, or a local hotel depending on the time of year you choose to come. The cost of CUE also includes meals on university campuses or at local restaurants. You will have the opportunity to experience American-style food and try some of Azusa Pacific University staff members’ favorite restaurants.


Azusa Pacific University (APU) is located in Southern California, famous for scenic beauty, ethnic diversity, and recreational and cultural activities.
