College Exchange

Wells offers exchange programs with Cornell University and other nearby colleges.

"The resources and freedom to problem-solve as a team made available to me were very different from classroom lab instruction; this internship gave me an accurate idea of what obtaining a Ph.D. in microbiology is truly like."

A student may register for one course a semester at no extra charge, up to a total of four courses, at one of the area institutions below. Courses taken under these agreements will appear on the Wells transcript and will be included in the Wells grade point average. (Summer work taken at these institutions is not included in the cross-registration agreements.)

Cornell University Exchange Program

Wells students can enhance the range and depth of their education through a special affiliation with nearby Cornell University. Martriculated Wells students may register for courses offered by any of the seven undergraduate colleges of Cornell. This agreement will be especially beneficial to students who aspire to medicine or other graduate or professional programs at Cornell - they can begin to develop the contacts that will help them gain admission. A regularly scheduled shuttle bus transports students to and from the Cornell campus. Wells has a number of specialized programs offered in conjunction with Cornell.

As part of the Wells College-Cornell University Exchange program, matriculated students may register for courses offered by Cornell University that do not duplicate a Wells course and that are acceptable for transfer to Wells College. This option is open to students with a minimum cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 and after completing the first semester. A student may take one course a semester at Cornell University, but no more than four throughout her or his career at Wells, and must be granted permission by the advisor and the registrar. Students should not expect to fulfill college distribution or major requirements by taking courses under this program. For summer work taken at Cornell University or any work during the semester for which the student pays Cornell University tuition, the courses will be treated as any other transfer work. Students taking a course at Cornell University under this agreement may not take a course in the same semester at Cayuga Community College or Ithaca College under the agreement with those colleges.

Students interested in engineering can undertake a 3/2 program with Cornell University. This leads to a Bachelor of Arts from Wells College, as well as a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from Cornell.

Cayuga Community College Exchange Program

As part of the Wells College-Cayuga Community College Exchange program, matriculated students may register for courses offered by CCC that do not duplicate a Wells course and that are acceptable for transfer to Wells College. This option is open to students with a minimum cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 and after completing the first semester. A student may take one course a semester at CCC, but no more than four throughout her or his career at Wells, and must be granted permission by the advisor and the registrar. Students should not expect to fulfill college distribution or major requirements by taking courses under this program. For summer work taken at CCC, or any work during the semester for which the student pays CCC tuition, the courses will be treated as any other transfer work. Students taking a course at CCC under this agreement may not take a course in the same semester at Cornell University or Ithaca College under the agreement with those colleges.

Wells College-Ithaca College Exchange Program

Under the Wells College-Ithaca College Exchange program, full-time matriculated students may register for courses offered by Ithaca College that do not duplicate a Wells course and are acceptable for transfer to Wells College. This option is open to students with a minimum cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 and after completing the first semester. A student may take one course per semester at IC, but no more than 12 semester credits total (CU and CCC programs each allow four courses) throughout her or his career at Wells, and must be granted permission by the advisor and the registrar. A student should not expect to fulfill college distribution or major requirements by taking courses under this program, except with prior approval from her advisor and the registrar. For summer work taken at IC, or any work during the semester for which the student pays IC tuition, the courses will be treated as any other transfer work. Students taking a course at IC under the agreement may not take a course in the same semester at Cornell University under the agreement with CU, nor at Cayuga Community College under the agreement with CCC.
