What Parents Need to Know

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.

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.
