Consistently, over 55 percent of Dartmouth undergraduate students participate on one or more academic off-campus programs before they graduate. Students returning to campus after participating in a program often speak of experiences that were academically and culturally rich as well as life changing.

A distinguishing feature of Dartmouth’s program model is strong involvement by departments and interested faculty, which leads to the development of meaningful relationships between undergraduate students and faculty directors/mentors, and it ensures that off-campus program experiences are tightly integrated into the on-campus curriculum.

Dartmouth offers a variety of opportunities for undergraduate students to study off-campus and earn credit toward their degree. The four main categories of opportunities for off-campus study are Dartmouth Language Study Abroad (LSA and LSA+), Dartmouth Foreign Study Programs (FSP), Dartmouth Exchange Programs, and Transfer Credit from another four-year, degree-granting, academic institution unaffiliated with Dartmouth College.

We encourage you to explore our website to learn more about programs offered by Dartmouth College, to become familiar with program requirements, and if you are currently enrolled as an undergraduate student at Dartmouth, to apply for programs.
