Where do you want to travel and study?

You can study on an exchange program short-term, for the summer, a semester, or for a year.

How to apply for an exchange program

To apply for any exchange program, you must file a petition with Cornell and have that petition approved by Cornell.

Application (financial aid petition) deadline and tuition

The deadline is February 6, 2019. As long as you submit the petition on time and the petition is approved, your tuition for the exchange program will be similar to your Cornell tuition.

File your petition(s) for transfer of credit and add/drop form

Each course that you want to transfer credit for must have a petition for transfer of credit form completed and returned to the Registrar's office. Only courses taken at an accredited institution will be accepted and you must pass with a "C" or higher. The course must also be approved by the Cornell department chair. You must also submit an add/drop form to be turned into the Registrar before your departure.

Complete your student waiver form

The student waiver form must be completed if you are studying off-campus on any program that is not a Cornell College course. This includes all exchange, affiliated, and non-affiliated program participants.
