School for International Training Programs

The College Semester Abroad program of the School for International Training (SIT/World Learning) provides a unique opportunity to experience other cultures through language study, a homestay, and cross-cultural orientation. Each participant, in consultation with the academic study director on site, plans and completes an independent study project. Most SIT programs also include intensive language instruction. To undertake any of the following programs, the student must have a grade point average of 3.0 or higher at the end of the Block preceding the start of the program and have satisfied the program prerequisites, if any.

Each program awards four Cornell course credits. The particular nature of the credit varies with each program. The program selection changes annually, so for complete and up-to-date details and program descriptions for programs offered in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Pacific, consult the SIT web page [http://www.sit.edu/studyabroad/], or the Cornell program advisor.
