Frequently Asked Questions

Is there an additional cost to participate in the Cornell and Wells exchange programs?

Ithaca has entered into agreements with both colleges, allowing our students to take courses there for free in exchange for us allowing some of their students to take courses here for free. To participate, you must be matriculated (i.e. working towards a degree) and taking a full time course load. You are allowed 12 free credits; after 12, you must pay for the extra credits. Normally you will not pay a registration fee, unless you register late. The office of extended studies at Ithaca oversees this program.
