Get Started Planning Your Semester Abroad

Colgate's Office of Off-Campus Study can help you plan your experience:
Get the big picture

Attend An Off-Campus Study Info SessionLearn about how Off-Campus Study programs at Colgate fit into your degree!  From semester study groups, extended study subjects and approved programs, discover the differences each of these options provides and how it may work for you.  Programs are available in a wide variety of geographic destinations and offer many academic disciplines. From Washington, DC to London to Cape Town to Shanghai and many places in between...where will you go?

General information sessions will be held every Tuesday at 5pm via Zoom. Please refer to the Colgate campus calendar for the Zoom link.
Schedule an Appointment with an Off-Campus Study Staff Member
With so many possibilities, how can you pick just one?

Identify the programs of greatest interest to you, and then we recommend that students initially start by meeting with a Peer Adviser, a great way for students to get general information about studying off campus from a student who recently went abroad. During the 2021-22 year, there will be three peer advisers (Katy Gardner '21Caroline Karnosh '21, and Danielle Zarnick '21) who are able to provide basic information about options and processes, or to answer quick questions about the application process. Peer Advising is available by appointment only. Please find the next available calendar times by clicking on the names of the peer advisers above. 

After meeting with a peer adviser, we encourage students to reach out to an Off-Campus Study program manager who can answer specific questions regarding programs and applications. 

Sophomores have priority for appointments through February. First years, please schedule in March after attending an info session.
