College-specific Requirements

Colleges may also have specific requirements for study abroad (GPA, prior study at Cornell, ability to study abroad in your final semester, etc.). Learn about your college's policies.

Program-specific Requirements

Engineering students should discuss the question of preparation and fit with the Engineering Advising office before meeting with Cornell Abroad. 

Students at CentraleSupélec will have a stronger background in math and physics than Cornell students, so an advanced background in math is key. 

Ideally, students should have 3 semesters of college French or the equivalent, though students may have less and still succeed.
