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.

WE ARE NOW ADVISING FOR SUMMER & FALL 2020!

Remember that approval for OCS semester terms is done on a rolling admissions basis and terms fill according to the rate at which applications are submitted. 

The deadline to complete the first two steps of the advising process for Fall 2020
has now passed.

If you did not complete Steps 1 and 2 of the advising process before October 22,
you may wish to consider studying off campus in Spring 2021. (Note that this does
not apply to Summer 2020 off-campus study. The deadline for all Summer 2020
program applications is February 1. This is NOT a rolling deadline.)


IF YOU COMPLETED STEPS 1 AND 2 OF THE ADVISING PROCESS BEFORE OCTOBER 22 AND YOU WISH TO REMAIN IN CONSIDERATION FOR FALL 2020 OFF-CAMPUS STUDY YOU MUST:

1) Meet with an OCS advisor before Friday, December 6, 2019. Bear in mind that during busy advising times, appointments can fill up 2 weeks or more in advance, so please schedule early and email the OCS advisor if you are unable to find an appointment time that works for you.

2) Communicate your program choice to your OCS advisor before the Winter
break.

 

If you are interested in Spring 2021 off-campus study, you do not need to begin the process now.  Timelines for Spring 2021 will be posted soon.

If you are interested in Summer 2020 Summer Travel Courses, please follow the instructions at each site.  If you are interested in other Summer 2020 off-campus study programs, your deadline is February 1.

 

OCS Timeline

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

Which term should you study off-campus? Consult the Choosing your Term page for important advice.

You may also find our Eligibility & Deadlines and Off-Campus Study Timeline videos useful. All students are required to watch these videos before meeting with an OCS advisor.

Other Ways to Connect

Come to a Dips Abroad News Hour! Throughout the semester, our office will be offering info sessions and workshops on a variety of topics related to Off-Campus Study. They will take place in the Joseph International Center. Please watch for regular emails announcing upcoming news hours.

 

2019-2020 Off-Campus Study Ambassadors

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.   

Meet the 2019-2020 Ambassadors
