Study Abroad

*Please Note: Fall 2021 Study Abroad trips are canceled.*

Tompkins Cortland Community College sponsors short term programs in several different countries. New programs are always in the works.

Study abroad makes students better leaders and more employable global citizens, looks extraordinary on your resume, and can change the way you think about the world.


If you are interested in any of these programs, contact the Coordinator of Study Abroad Programs, in the Office of Global Initiatives at 607.844.8222, Ext. 4383, Room 248 for more information and to apply. Interested students should also speak to the faculty trip leader to learn about the program.
