Schedule an Off-Campus Study Appointment

Advisers in the Office of Off-Campus Study are available to consult with students regarding opportunities to study off campus in Colgate study groups, extended studies, and approved programs.

Sophomore Students Receive Priority

Through the month of February, sophomore students receive first priority in the scheduling of appointments with Off-Campus Study advisers. First and second-year students are asked to attend a General Information Session before making an Individual Advising Appointment.

Before Scheduling an Appointment

Before scheduling an appointment, students should get acquainted with the varieties of off-campus study opportunities offered, including:

For the most productive conversation, students should come to their consultation after attending a general information session, with a list of specific programs of interest, and should think ahead about their goals and questions.

Drop-in open advising is Monday through Thursday, 1:15pm to 2pm.


    Schedule an Appointment

    We recommend that students initially start by meeting with a Peer Adviser, a great way for students to get general program and cost/expense information about studying off campus from a student who recently went abroad. Throughout the academic year there will be available peer advisers who are able to provide basic information about options and processes, or to answer quick questions about the application process.

    Individual Advising Appointments with professional staff will begin on October 7th and continue throughout December. All appointments are scheduled through Google Calendar (click on the name link below). All advisers are available for general inquiries about all programs; for information about specific programs, please refer to the details below.

    Unless otherwise requested, all appointments will be held in person at 101 McGregory Hall.
