In order to study off campus, you must work through our office to make sure both financial aid and credit transfer, and to receive other important information and services that will help you have a successful experience.


Ideally you should be planning your off-campus study at least a year in advance. For science majors, you should begin as early as your freshman year. Refer to this timeline as often as you need to as a reminder of when you should be working on certain tasks.

The Off-Campus Study Ambassadors are F&M seniors who have studied off-campus previously (sometimes more than once!).  Ambassadors organize events across campus for both prospective and returned off-campus study students and are available to communicate with students and answer questions.
