Thinking about studying off-campus?

Here are your next steps:

Attend an OCS 101 session.

These are informal sessions with the OCS Peer Advisors to tell you about OCS rules and requirements.

They are held in APEX:

  • Monday-Friday from 11am-12pm
  • Tuesday from 7-8pm
  • Walk-In Wednesdays from 1:30-5pm

After attending an OCS 101 session, meet with an OCS staff member.

Candace and Jamie are the two advisors for Off-Campus Study.
Who you meet with depends on the area of study you wish to focus on while studying off-campus:

Candace Chenoweth - Director of Off-Campus Study

Jamie Adler - Assistant Director of Off-Campus Study

  • Students planning to focus on arts, humanities, social sciences, or language study while off-campus
  • Undecided majors who are unsure of what they want to study while off-campus
  • Make an appointment with Jamie
