Steps to Off-Campus Study

In order to study away, you must go through Stevenson University and the Office of International & Off-Campus Study. This is the only way to receive assistance with the transfer of credit and possible utilization of financial aid.

To begin planning your off-campus experience, follow the below steps:

1) Explore the variety of options on the International and Off-Campus Study application site at

2) Consult your academic advisor regarding remaining courses for degree completion (e.g. general education, electives, major, minor) and what can be taken off-campus to fulfill them.

3) Complete the Off-Campus Study Interest Profile online (for “SU in” and Affiliate Programs only). If you are going on an Affiliate Program, this step must be completed before submitting the program-specific application.

4) View the ‘IOCS 101’ presentation (for “SU in” and Affiliate Programs only), found in the Interest Profile. If you completed the Interest Profile prior to the start of Spring Semester 2017 but had not attended the International & Off-Campus Study Information Session (offered from Jan-Dec 2016), please contact for instructions.

5) Meet with an Office of International and Off-Campus Study representative to discuss options. Schedule an appointment by contacting For a SU Travel Course, contact the faculty leader for additional information.

6) Complete the online application for your desired option by the stated deadline.

7) Explore scholarship options well in advance—deadlines can occur even before program applications are due.
