Although academic requirements and standards for courses held off-campus parallel those in Ithaca, standards of acceptable behavior often differ and can be more stringent. In addition, every program will have unique guidelines based on the location and cultural mores of the population; these guidelines will be shared during your pre-departure orientation or when your program begins.
We expect all participants to conduct themselves in a manner that brings credit to themselves, Cornell University, and the program at all times. Failure to adhere to these standards of conduct may result in removal from the program without appeal and without credit. In such an event, no tuition refunds will be provided. Some offenses may also subject a student to formal Cornell disciplinary procedures and/or criminal charges and jail time where the event occurred.
