Skidmore College
Off-Campus Study & Exchanges

Policies and Procedures

Off-Campus Study at Skidmore College has been developed to complement Skidmore’s degree programs and meet the high standards of a Skidmore education. Skidmore College views off-campus study as an extension of the student’s Skidmore academic experience. The main objective of our off-campus program structure is to include programs that allow Skidmore students to integrate more closely their experiences off-campus with their work here on campus. All off-campus programs are linked to Skidmore’s curriculum and are meant to support majors and minors. To do this Skidmore has developed Skidmore programs abroad, a list of approved study abroad programs, and a number of domestic study opportunities, including ourSkidmore/Spelman College Exchange, the Semester in Environmental Science, and the Washington Semester programs. Skidmore College also employs a financial structure that allows an inclusive approach to off campus study.

Administered through Off-Campus Study & Exchanges (OCSE), students may study abroad on Skidmore Programs – including Skidmore in London, Skidmore in New ZealandSkidmore in Paris, and Skidmore in Spain – and Approved Programs, both international and domestic.

The Approved Programs list includes programs around the world and in the U.S. that complement the academic quality and administrative support offered to our students on campus. Approved Programs have been chosen and approved by Skidmore’s academic departments and programs in conjunction with the Off-Campus Study & Exchanges.
