Summer Study Abroad

If you wish to study off-campus but can't go for a semester or on a Colgate extended study, you may wish to consider a summer study abroad experience.
Choosing a Program

Colgate does not maintain a list of approved, non-Colgate summer study abroad programs. Students are welcome to meet with an Off-Campus Study advisor to discuss their plans.  Transfer credit from summer study abroad will only be accepted from U.S. university-led programs, direct enrollment at a foreign university, or from program providers listed on Colgate's Approved Programs list.

Program Approval and Deadlines

Students applying to eligible programs as described above are required to submit a Transfer Credit for Summer/Intersession to the Registrar by May 1 (summer term) or December 1 (intersession).

Transfer Credit from Summer Study Please refer to the Office of the Registar's website.
Costs and Financial Aid

Students pay summer program providers directly. Colgate financial aid is not available for summer programs.  Off-Campus Study advisors and the Office of National Fellowships and Scholarships may be able to assist students in identifying scholarships possibilities.
