Off-Campus Study

A category of off-campus education that results in progress toward an academic degree at the home institution. Domestic Off-Campus Study and Study Abroad are subtypes. Includes not only exchanges and off-campus study terms but also such activities as field research projects, field trips, biology or geology field courses, internships yielding credit or fulfilling other degree requirements, or course-embedded service-learning. Although “progress toward an academic degree” most often means the home institution will grant or accept degree credit, possibilities include satisfaction of a language requirement or completion of a senior thesis.
