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. For example, your college may have a higher GPA requirement for approval than what is required by the program itself.

Program-specific Requirements

CET’s admissions requirements include an online application form, a transcript, a foreign language writing sample, and one letter of recommendation. CET programs are designed for undergraduates who maintain an overall GPA of at least 3.0. However, admissions decisions are made on a case-by-case basis, so COrnell students with lower GPAs are encouraged to apply if they have college approval.
