Students with multicultural identities will have unique opportunities and challenges during their off-campus study experience(s). The IOS Office recognizes and honors that many students may face unique familial, financial, and/or personal barriers in the off-campus study process. The IOS Office strives to remove as many barriers as possible in the application, advising, participation, and re-entry processes. We strongly encourage all students who are interested in off-campus study to meet with an IOS Advisor or a staff member in the Taylor Center for Equity and Inclusion Office.
How long do you want to be off campus? How will your off-campus experience fit into your four-year plan? See studying off-campus as an opportunity to expand your understanding of the world, enhance your resume and employment application materials, and as an opportunity to gain new experiences that will inform your future academic coursework and career. Do your research! The more you know about your academic program and the host community, the more you can prepare and share with your support networks.
