e. the merits of a recommendation (if supplied) from the program director, an
         academic advisor, or instructor who can testify to the relevance of the program to
         the student's studies, and who can comment on the student's ability to participate
         successfully (academically and socially); and

    f. the student's cumulative grade point average.
    g. the student’s level of financial need.
7. For students approved by the Academic Standing Committee to have their need-
    based Cornell funding applied to the period of time the student is studying with the
    affiliated program, the College will pay the program all or part of the student’s
    tuition, depending upon the program charges. If the program tuition is less that
    Cornell’s charges for the time period, however, no adjustment in Cornell charges will
    be made. The costs of transportation, lodging, and meals are normally the student's
    responsibility. Because each program is structured differently, students, before
    making application, should ascertain the actual costs by conferring with the Student
    Accounts Manager in the Business Office and the Office of Financial Assistance.
    Students are not allowed to use their tuition exchange or remission benefit for these
    programs.

Other Off-Campus Study/Academic Leave of Absence

Students who were not approved for funding to participate in pre-approved off-campus
programs or students who wish to study on programs that have not been pre-approved
by Cornell College may petition the Academic Standing Committee for permission to
participate on an Academic Leave of Absence at least 90 days prior to the start of the

program.

1. Students must have completed at least four credits prior to program start date.

2. Students will not receive more course credits than the number of Cornell terms

encompassed in their program.

3. Students will register for ALA 701 for international off campus coursework or ALA

702 for domestic off campus coursework.

4. Credits by transfer (other than summer school) while a student is participating in an

Academic Leave of Absence will only be accepted when approved in advance by the

Academic Standing Committee. Grades will be posted as transfer work, i.e., as

"Credit" only, provided grades of "C" or better are earned. Grades are not calculated

into the student's Cornell grade point average.

5. If approved by the Director of Financial Assistance, the Registrar and agreeable to

the sponsoring college or university, and if the duration of the program will not

exceed one academic year, the two institutions may enter into a consortium or

contractual agreement. Please contact the Office of Financial Assistance to determine

if you are eligible for an agreement and which type of agreement applies to your

program. Under either arrangement, the College will consider the student to be

enrolled at Cornell while participating in the approved program, and will provide any

federal and state financial assistance to which the student is entitled. Cornell-funded

scholarship and aid monies are not generally available to students participating in

non-affiliated programs. Because each program is structured differently, students,

before making application, should ascertain the actual costs by conferring with the

Student Accounts Manager in the Business Office and the Office of Financial

Assistance.
