Advisory Committee for Off-Campus Study
Information for Faculty on Off-Campus Study petitions for study abroad in academic year 2007-2008
The following is a list of the situations that require a student to petition the Off-Campus Study Office and Advisory Committee on Off-Campus Study by March 1, 2007, and the materials that must be submitted as part of the petition. The student can only petition one time; no petition can be reconsidered at a later date with new material, including additional faculty recommendations. All materials should thus be submitted with the student's petition before March 1. Specific details of petition criteria are available on our web site at www.colby.edu/off-campus/faculty.html. All petitions will be approved at the discretion of the Off-Campus Study Advisory Committee and within the space constraints of the enrollment goals of the College.
A.Off-campus study by any student whose GPA is below 2.7 after Jan Plan of 2007.
B.Off-campus study for more than one semester (unless the student is exempt from petitioning according to the policies outlined in the OCS handbook). This includes off-campus study in one location for a year or in two different locations for a semester each ("Y2").
C.A Program, either abroad or domestic, that is not on the current "approved list" (in the OCS handbook).
Students will be notified by mid-January whether they will need to petition, based on their preliminary applications. They will have a meeting scheduled in OCS, be given relevant criteria and forms, and encouraged to contact faculty members for support immediately. Students not on campus in January will meet with OCS in early February.
