CPIU cancelled for summer 2020

We regret to inform you that due to challenges posed by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) we are suspending the formal CPIU program for summer 2020.

Please be assured that Cornell University and the School of Continuing Education (SCE) are monitoring the situation and working to find ways to help you continue your studies and meet your academic goals.

To that end, to facilitate access to university summer classes, SCE is waiving the application process and opening the general Cornell University Summer Session to all students.

If you’re unable to travel, consider enrolling in one or more of our online summer courses and earn up to fifteen credits during the entire summer period (May-August).

If you’re able to stay in or travel to the U.S., you may choose from hundreds of on-campus summer courses. On-campus housing and dining options are available. To learn about health and safety, activities, academic support, and more, visit the Student Services pages.

Enjoy an academic, cultural & social introduction to life at Cornell

In the Cornell Program for International Undergraduates, you'll enroll in regular Cornell classes for credit, work closely with top Cornell professors, and develop skills essential for success at an American college.

Learning alongside other Cornell students, you'll experience the open teaching style of an American university.

As a bonus, you'll have many opportunities to experience American society and culture, from off-campus sightseeing trips to free concerts and lectures on campus every week. You can also enjoy Cornell's art museum, botanical gardens, recreation centers, and beautiful landscapes.

Typically, the credits you earn can be applied toward an undergraduate degree at Cornell or transferred to other universities within the U.S. and elsewhere.

Program options include three- and six-week courses between late June and early August.
