The Cornell in Rome study away opportunity uniquely allows enrollment in one of two on-site courses offered through the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning. These courses are offered as regular Cornell courses and, as such, will be printed on your Cornell transcript with a grade that is factored into your GPA.
Registration and Course Enrollment
Students participating in a Study Away opportunity will focus primarily on their Cornell online courses and must enroll in a minimum of 12 Cornell credits. Students will be required to enroll in at least one additional course from the local program.
- Register for 12-15 credits of Cornell University courses online in addition to 3-4 credits in-person in Rome*
- Obtain approval from your college for your course(s) taken through the study away partner/university** (note: study away students will not be required to take a language course)
*All students should plan to participate in Cornell fall pre-enrollment as usual. If you are approved to Study Away, you will receive additional instructions regarding course enrollment.
**Only your college or school is able to determine how host-enrolled course credit will return toward your Cornell degree. In most cases, this will be elective or distribution credit, but in some cases could be approved as major, minor or concentration credit, however this is subject to college/school policy and is not guaranteed. More information on how and when to obtain approval will be communicated by your college or school upon approval to participate.
