Cornell-Approved International Programs
Cornell College recognizes the growing interdependence of peoples and nations in today's world. To function in this interdependent world, liberally-educated persons need to be literate in other languages, understanding of other cultures, and receptive to other viewpoints. College-sponsored study-abroad opportunities for students have been part of the curriculum since the 1950s. In its cultural and extracurricular programming the College has also made an effort to include the arts and ideas of different cultures and countries.
International off-campus programs are occasionally added and removed as interest, safety concerns and financial feasibility change. For latest program information, contact the Office of International and Off-Campus Studies.
Foreign Language Abroad Program (1-9)
The Department of Classical and Modern Languages offers qualified students the opportunity to participate in certain programs operated by other institutions in countries where the native language is French, German, Japanese, Russian, or Spanish. All of the courses in approved FLAP programs are taught in the foreign language. Prerequisites: a grade point average of 3.0 or higher at the end of the term preceding the start of the program and the appropriate 205-level course or its equivalent in the language to be studied (some programs may require additional language preparation). At least one course in the language must have been taken at Cornell. Programs range from one month to one year. FACULTY IN MODERN LANGUAGES 
Financial Aid for Off-Campus Programs
Students may apply their "need-based" aid toward a Cornell-affiliated off-campus program if they have been approved by the Academic Standing Committee to attend (see Off-Campus Programs). Cornell will then pay the host institution of the off-campus program. If the cost of the program is more than Cornell's charges for a semester, the student must pay the difference. Please contact the Business Office for further information on costs and payments.
Please contact the Office of Financial Assistance to discuss your off-campus program and what financial aid might be available.
