Immersing in new cultures and perspectives through off-campus study is a significant growth experience for many students. Covered by financial aid, Colgate’s varied programs are within reach for all students.
The Approved Program application deadline for Fall 2022 only has been extended to Friday, March 18.
Off-Campus Study can no longer accept any applications for Spring 2023 approved programs.
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.
