It is never too early to begin planning your study abroad experience. We strongly encourage students to start the planning process during their freshman year with the guidance of the Academic Advising Center and the Office of International Programs. This will ensure that academic progress will be made during a semester abroad.
Steps to Study Abroad
STEP 1: Consult with an academic advisor to discuss the possibility of spending a semester abroad
STEP 2: Explore your Options
The next step in the process is to take some time to browse through the study abroad programs Ithaca College has to offer. Consider attending an information session or schedule a meeting with a study abroad advisor to discuss your options.
STEP 3: Register/Apply to the program
Once you have selected a program, your next step is to register for the program in our online study abroad database, Terra Dotta, then apply directly to the program.
STEP 4: Complete the post-acceptance requirements
After being accepted to a study abroad program, you will have post-acceptance requirements to complete for Ithaca College. These requirements will vary based upon the program you have selected: An Ithaca College program, exchange program, affiliated program, or non-affiliated program.
