Office location: 300 Caldwell Hall
Cornell Abroad is the university-wide office that administers the application process for non-exchange academic year or semester-long study abroad (whether through direct enrollment, third-party providers, or Cornell Abroad-managed programs). Program models vary greatly, so it’s worth exploring options to find the type of program will meet your goals. Depending on the destination and program provider, tuition and program fees also vary greatly. It could cost more, less, or about the same as attending CALS as an out-of-state resident. In-state students might find it to be more expensive than studying in Ithaca (this is not always the case, however).
The Cornell Abroad office offers walk-in advising services (M-F 1:30-3:00pm), pre-departure programming, and other assistance to support non-exchange programs.
