About Off-Campus Study

Quick Facts:

  • Off-campus study is a central part of an Earlham education, providing a uniquely challenging and enriching experience.
  • Earlham offers both international and U.S.-based off-campus programs.
  • More than 65% of Earlham College graduates study off campus for a semester or an academic year.
  • Participants pay normal Earlham College tuition, fees, room and board, plus travel costs to and from the program site, and any personal expenses. Earlham pays the on-site costs for you. Scholarships for travel costs are available on a competitive basis. All regular forms of financial aid (except student employment) apply to one Earlham or Earlham-approved program from this page.
  • You can participate as a sophomore, junior, or senior. Academic and CGCE advisers will help you to think about when it would fit best in your personal EPIC journey.
  • Programs are open to students in any major, and all students are encouraged to apply.
  • Early planning is essential! Talk to us and your academic adviser in your first year at Earlham to build this into your four-year plan. With a little planning, participants will easily graduate from Earlham on time.
  • Courses taken in off-campus study can meet both general and major-specific requirements. Participation is also one way to satisfy part of the requirements for the Designation of Distinction in Global Education [link to the DDGE page].
  • Participants in off-campus study earn full academic credit for their coursework, and grades from Earlham and Earlham-approved programs are included in calculating the GPA.

Why off-campus study?

Students tell us that during an off-campus experience they gain new ways of living and thinking, they experience new ways of understanding the world, and they learn more about themselves and their own cultures. Past participants and alumni often report that their off-campus study experience was one of the most important parts of their liberal arts education and one that has had a lifelong impact on them.
