CPIU goes online for summer 2021

The formal CPIU on-campus program will be offered again in summer 2022.

In the meantime, to facilitate access to Cornell classes, SCE is waiving the CPIU application process and encouraging students to enroll in one or more of our online summer courses and earn up to fifteen credits during the entire summer period (June-August).

To enroll, follow the instructions on the international student page.

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.
