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. Most notably, students in Arts & Sciences must fulfill language and area study requirements prior to studying abroad for a semester.

Program-specific Requirements

Successful applicants must have two years of college level Mandarin by the application deadline.

As the final step in the application process, all applications initially approved by IUP’s admissions team will be invited to take a 15-minute phone or Skype interview in Mandarin conducted by a qualified IUP instructor. There are three possible outcomes of the interview: pass, fail, and borderline. Those who are considered “borderline” cases may be granted a second interview.

Academic Year/Fall Semester applicants whose applications are initially approved will be interviewed in early March. Summer and Spring applicants will be interviewed shortly after their applications are initially approved.
