SOAN Credit for Off-Campus Study
SOAN majors are allowed to transfer a maximum of two relevant courses from a Colgate or Colgate-approved off-campus study group. SOAN minors may transfer one course.
Typically, SOAN allows transfer credit only for elective courses; students are not allowed to fulfill required introductory, methods, theory, or senior seminar courses through off-campus study.
Ultimately, students are responsible for making sure that off-campus study courses fulfill SOAN major or minor requirements. Your faculty advisor can provide feedback on possible course choices and how those may fulfill SOAN requirements. If your plans for off-campus study change, make sure to keep your SOAN faculty advisor informed about those changes, so that he or she may advise you about the best opportunities.
