Dear Colby Faculty & Staff:

In an increasingly interdependent world, an understanding of other parts of the world is an essential aspect of a student’s education. The opportunity to study in another country, for a semester or year offers students access to a wealth of knowledge and experience that can enrich their personal, academic, and professional lives.

More than two thirds of Colby’s students spend time studying off-campus before they graduate, choosing from over 180 academic programs in sixty countries and with Jan Plan, students have additional opportunities to extend their Colby experience around the globe. We see OCS as an important complement to the on-campus education you provide and your involvement and support is key to our students’ success here and off-campus.

The information included here is designed to help you better understand what OCS does, our policies and procedures and assist you in providing the guidance our students need.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, suggestions and/or would like to schedule a meeting with us. We welcome your feedback!
