Off-campus studies student on a trip abroad

Participating in an off-campus Cornell course is an immersive learning opportunity. Studying for a Block or for a few days can be a transformative experience. Not many schools or programs allow the flexibility for students to travel off-campus so easily or frequently. And with One Course At A Time, you never have to worry about conflicts with your other courses.

Traveling from Cornell to your destination around the world (and back) is education at the speed of life.

How to register for an off-campus studies course

Registration for off-campus courses is the same as registering for your other courses, except that some faculty may require you to request their permission during the registration process. You can always contact the Registrar’s Office if you have any trouble registering for an off-campus course.

If you want to add an off-campus course after the initial registration period, contact us (International and Off-Campus Studies) for details on what to do next.

Some off-campus studies courses have additional costs. Review the current course payment schedule for details.

And finally, don't forget to submit the appropriate waiver.

If you are participating in an affiliated or non-affiliated program (not a Cornell off-campus study course), review all the steps necessary and remember to complete the non-Cornell course waiver
