IE University in Madrid & Segovia - CALS Exchange

Application Information

Programs maintain their own application systems and databases. In some (but not all) cases, students may need to apply to a program directly prior to receiving Cornell approval, however, your ability to participate on the program remains contingent upon receiving approval from the Office of Global Learning and your School/College at Cornell. The Office of Global Learning will provide any necessary "home school" approval or nomination only after completion and approval of your Cornell application.

  • Please indicate if this program is your first choice or back-up.: Most students should only consider applying to one program. Ask your program advisor if you are not sure how competitive your program's admissions process is. Your advisor can help you decide whether you really need a back up (or not).

  • What is the title of your preferred DIS "Core Course"?: DIS admits students on a rolling basis, and course registration is available immediately upon admission into the program. Courses are filled using a “first-come, first-served” policy. Therefore, neither Cornell nor DIS can guarantee that all students will have access to their preferred Core Course.

  • What is the title of your back-up DIS Core Course?: If you cannot be placed in your preferred Core Course, DIS will consider you for this one. Your back-up Core Course does not have to be associated with the same academic Program as your preferred Core Course.

  • What is your intended major?

  • Do you have a second major or a minor?

  • What is your second major or minor?

  • Are you Pre-health, Pre-law, or Pre-vet?

  • List the primary subject(s) you intend to pursue while abroad.: Depending on your host program, this may be a specific subject, track, degree, or list of subject areas. Use your host’s terminology if it is different from Cornell’s. The subject may be related to your major or minor and is usually something where you have some background.
