When do students study abroad?

If you want to spend a semester or academic year abroad, it is most common for students to do this during junior year, although spending a semester abroad during the fall of senior year is becoming more common. Studying abroad for a semester or academic year as a sophomore or during the semester you are scheduled to graduate is generally not approved. If you wish to go on a short-term or summer program, there are opportunities during any year you are actively enrolled at Cornell. If you plan well, you may even be able to study abroad more than once while at Cornell!
