Students wishing to participate in approved domestic programs must meet the same deadlines for preliminary and final applications as students who wish to study abroad. These programs are listed in the Handbook of Off-Campus Study Opportunities, available each fall on the Off-Campus Study Web site (www.colby.edu/off-campus).
Exchange programs: Colby participates in student exchange programs with Howard University in Washington, D.C., the Claremont Colleges in Claremont, Calif., and Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, Ga. Ordinarily, exchanges are arranged for a single semester of the junior year. Each student pays tuition, board, and room charges at the home institution; travel is at the student’s expense.
Opportunities to Study and Intern in Washington: Colby students may study and intern in Washington, D.C., for a semester. Students from a variety of majors take advantage of this opportunity. More information is available through the Off-Campus Study Office.
Engineering Programs: Colby has a coordinated dual degree engineering program with Dartmouth College, in which both a bachelor of arts and a bachelor of engineering can be earned. Students spend their first two years and their senior year at Colby and their junior year and a fifth year at Dartmouth. The usual Colby graduation requirements must be met in addition to engineering prerequisites, so careful course planning is important.
Course Exchange: A course exchange program is in effect with Thomas College. Students may obtain information from the registrar.
