Curious about what it means to study abroad? Or, do you know that you want to study abroad, but no sure where? Do you wonder if you can afford it? What about getting credits toward graduation? Do you want to get in contact with students who already studied abroad?


CALS Study Abroad & Exchange Info Session and Student Panel

Tuesday, February 6, 2018
Warren Hall, B51

A general information session for CALS students interested in studying abroad. CALS student “returnees” will be on hand to talk about their experiences. We'll cover factors to consider when selecting a program, the study abroad application and approval process, and other important information. Students who attend this session DO NOT need to attend the Study Abroad 101 session as well. Be sure to be on time and sign-in to get "credit" for attending. Sponsored by CALS and Cornell Abroad.

Step One: CALS Study Abroad 101

CALS Study Abroad 101 sessions are held periodically* during the academic year.

Times and Locations:

  • Tuesday, Jan 30, 2018, 5:00-5:30pm, 170 Roberts hall
  • Monday, Feb 12, 2018, 5:00-5:45pm, 103 Kennedy Hall (special focus on CALS programs in Scandinavia)
  • Thursday, Feb 15, 2018, 5:00-5:30 pm, 170 Roberts hall
  • Wednesday, Feb 21, 2018, 10:00-10:30am, 170 Roberts hall
  • Tuesday, Feb 27, 2018, 4:30-5:00pm, 170 Roberts hall

These meetings cover factors to consider when selecting a program, the study abroad application and approval process, and other important information. All students are required to attend one of these information sessions before applying for a program or meeting with the study abroad and exchange advisor to discuss personal study abroad opportunities. No appointment is necessary for the 101 session. Attend only once to get all of the information needed to get started in finding the right program for you.

*Be on time! Because these meetings cover a lot of information in a short period of time, latecomers cannot be accommodated and will be asked to come back for another session when they can attend the entire session.

Step Two: Individual Advising

Once you have attended CALS Study Abroad 101 and decided whether to go abroad through the CALS Exchange or Cornell Abroad office, students should meet with the respective advisor.

For CALS Exchange, use our online scheduling platform or call 607-255-2257 to make an appointment.

For Cornell Abroad, program advising is done by appointment only. For general questions about the application process or tips on how to research programs, advisors are available for walk-in advising Monday-Friday, 1-2pm in 250 Caldwell Hall. Forms can be dropped off without appointment during normal business hours. Even if you go through Cornell Abroad, you must still attend a CALS Study Abroad 101 session before receiving CALS approval.
