Study Abroad & Off-Campus
The flexibility of the Dartmouth Plan provides unparalleled opportunities for study abroad and off-campus experiences.
With over 60% of students participating in our off-campus programs, Dartmouth is a leader in study abroad, and has been for more than 50 years. Dartmouth faculty members lead over 40 off-campus programs, all of which carry Dartmouth credit. Dartmouth-led study abroad and other off-campus programs fit seamlessly into your Dartmouth experience and our liberal arts curriculum.
Programs are available to all students as early as your first-year summer. Financial Aid covers your Dartmouth study abroad, as if you were on campus. Everyone can study abroad, even varsity athletes, though you'll want to speak with your coach about the best seasons to do so.

We have three main types of off-campus programs:
Language Study Abroad (LSA) allows for total immersion in a foreign culture. Students spend 20-24 hours weekly in class and live with a host family.
Foreign Study Programs (FSP) expand the Dartmouth curriculum into new areas of intellectual discovery and cultural understanding through supervised study and residence abroad. Foreign Study programs in the language departments offer advanced study of the country's language, literature and civilization.The College also offers a wide array of Foreign and Domestic Study programs that are conducted primarily in the English language.
Exchange Programs coordinated by Dartmouth departments provide students with an opportunity to live and learn at a peer institution elsewhere in the country or world. Established domestic Dartmouth exchanges include Morehouse, Spelman and Stanford, while Oxford, Keio University in Japan and the University of Tel Aviv are among our international partners. Dartmouth is also a member of the 12-College Exchange.
If you want to go on a program not offered by Dartmouth, you are welcome to; you will need apply for transfer credit for the coursework you complete. Also, Dartmouth does not offer financial aid for study-abroad programs not run through the College.
