Exchanges with Cornell University and Wells College

Ithaca College’s reciprocal arrangements with Cornell University and with Wells College allow matriculated, full-time Ithaca College students, with prior approval and within stated stipulations, to cross-register for one course or up to 4 credits per semester at Cornell University or Wells College. These arrangements are available during the fall and spring semesters only, contingent on space availability at Cornell or Wells. Students may petition the School of Humanities and Sciences to have exchange program credits satisfy Ithaca College General Education requirements. Exchange credits will satisfy students’ distribution requirements as deemed appropriate by the Ithaca College Office of the Registrar.

Undergraduate students must be currently enrolled for at least 12 credits at Ithaca College and may take only courses that are not offered at Ithaca College. (Schedule conflicts or unavailability of courses in a given semester do not constitute a valid rationale for enrollment as an exchange student.) Credits and transcripts are automatically transferred to Ithaca College and are included in GPA calculations. No additional tuition is charged, except in the case of students enrolled during any one semester for a combined total of more than 18 credits. Those students are subject to additional tuition charges on a per-credit basis.
