Ithaca College offers numerous opportunities for students to study abroad. Where students choose to study and in which programs they participate, is largely a personal choice. The Office of International Programs and Extended Studies (OIPES) is dedicated towards assisting students during the process of selecting and applying for a program, and also preparing them for their semester abroad after they have been accepted. It is our hope that this section will be helpful while preparing your student for a semester abroad.

A semester abroad is one of the most valuable opportunities a student can take advantage of during their undergraduate years at Ithaca College. Nearly all students returning from a semester abroad tell us that it was the best experience of their college career and most would go abroad again.
