If you are considering pursuing a non-Colgate off-campus study option, we encourage you to review our list of recent programs
that students have attended over the last few years and learn more about studying off campus by attending an information session in Off-Campus Study/International Programs (see Meetings and Updates
page). The general information meeting covers strategies for selecting a program, the transfer of credit, and provides an overview of Colgate's off-campus study policies. Individualized appointments with an off-campus study adviser are available to help you to assess your personal, academic and professional goals for off-campus study and to answer questions you may have about the application process or about preparing to study in a new culture.
If you will be participating in a non-Colgate program during the 2013-14 academic year, whether it is formally affiliated with Colgate or not, you are required to complete an Academic Leave of Absence Application. Contact our office
for an application.
See our non-Colgate programs page for all the steps to take to study off campus with a non-Colgate program
Currently, Colgate grants and state aid are not
available for participation in non-Colgate or affiliated programs, except for programs approved as part of the President's Interim Portable Aid Initiative
. However, federal aid is
transferable to such programs. Please be aware that a student may be required to begin repayment on federal loans when participating in certain non-Colgate programs.
Starting with the 2014–15
academic year, students who participate in a Colgate-approved non-Colgate program will pay Colgate tuition and receive their typical financial aid award as if they were a student on campus. Contact the financial aid office for additional information.
We maintain several special contractual agreements with external affiliated off-campus study programs. Specific information about these affiliated programs is available from the faculty members listed below who act as each program's on-campus contact. Beginning 2014-15 affiliated programs will be folded into Colgate's new approved programs category.
