Opportunities for Off-Campus Study

Knowing that all students are unique in their interests, goals, and backgrounds, Colgate offers a variety of off-campus study opportunities.

From full semester programs led by Colgate faculty in specific subject areas, to extended studies of just a few weeks, to hundreds of approved programs at other institutions, there is plenty of flexibility for students to find an opportunity of interest.

Meeting with a Peer adviser is a great way to learn basic information about options and processes, or to answer quick questions.
Peer Advising is available by appointment only, and students with specific or in-depth questions should make an individual advising appointment.

There will be OCS general information meetings held each Tuesday through October 13 at 5pm via Zoom.  Please refer to the Colgate campus calendar for the Zoom link.
