Summer College welcomes international students to Cornell and encourages you to take advantage of this chance to experience college life at a world-renowned university.

At Summer College, you'll truly be part of an international, multicultural community. Summer College students come from an average of 536 cities and 38 countries around the world! (Click on the interactive map above.)

As an international student at Cornell you'll be well supported by our International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO).

In addition, you'll find that Ithaca, New York, is a friendly, scenic, and vibrant small city. You'll hear more than English spoken at Summer College. And, we hope you'll share your culture and cuisine with us during culture nights.

We invite you to review our on-campus programs, including the English Immersion option if you're interested in dramatically improving your academic English writing, speaking, and listening skills.

If for some reason you can't make it to campus, consider taking a Cornell course online this summer or winter.
