Summer Study Abroad and Exchange Opportunities
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 StudyPlease 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.
Colgate University Exchange Student Opportunities
In addition to study groups, extended study groups, and approved programs, Colgate University also offers semester-long exchange programs for Colgate students at international partner institutions.
About Our Exchange Opportunities
Semester-long exchange programs at our partner universities immerse students in new cultures, perspectives, and experiences. Students live in university housing with their peers and receive instruction and mentoring from the faculty members at the exchange university.
Colgate Exchange Offerings
Student exchanges for the following academic year are announced annually in early October.
Speak with faculty coordinators to learn more about program structures, academic prerequisites, and other requirements.
