Program Information


Eligibility for the ILR/UCD Semester in Dublin Program will be determined on the basis of class standing, academic performance and educational motivation. Participation will be limited to ILR juniors and seniors; applicants must have a Grade Point Average of 3.0 or higher; and, applicants must explain how a semester of study in Dublin will enhance their education and facilitate their career development.

All admissions decisions will be made by the Director and Associate Director of ILR Off-Campus Credit Programs following consultations with appropriate faculty and staff of University College Dublin and in accordance with previously established enrollment limitations.


Students enrolled in the ILR/UCD Semester in Dublin Program will pay the same tuition charged during a semester in residence on the Ithaca campus. The differential costs of tuition set by Cornell University on the basis of residence or non-residence in New York State will remain in force.


ILR students enrolled in the ILR/UCD Semester in Dublin Program are guaranteed on-campus housing. At their option, however, students may also live in off-campus housing arranged through UCD. The cost of on-campus housing is set annually by UCD. The semester cost of on-campus housing, which consists of a private room in a three or four person apartment with shared bathroom and kitchen facilities, is approximately $4,000. Final cost will be determined by the specific residence hall you select.

The estimated cost of off-campus housing, which is available in privately-owned houses and apartments throughout the greater Dublin area, is approximately $1,050 per month, including all utilities.
