Off-Campus Study


Educating for the Global World

Welcome to your journey.

To thrive in today’s rapidly changing global age, you need to be ready to engage meaningfully with today’s world of unprecedented diversity. Colby’s commitment to providing students with quality off-campus academic opportunities has been a longstanding part of its educational philosophy. You will be given the chance to wade or dive into another culture and experience a wealth of knowledge and self-awareness, enriching your undergraduate experience.

More than two-thirds of Colby students participate in one or more global experiences during their time on the Hill, enhancing their undergraduate experience.

Off-Campus Study Office

We oversee a rich portfolio of more than two hundred credit bearing semester- and year-long programs, both international and domestic. Students planning to study away begin the advising and application process in our office at the start of their sophomore year. In collaboration with academic advisors, we strive to provide students with thoughtful guidance and reliable support throughout the entire process.
