Attend an Off-Campus Studies (OCS) "First Step" Informational Meeting. This meeting offers an introduction of Off-Campus Studies at Whitman College. There are typically 4 to 6 meetings per semester planned at various times so that a sophomore can choose a meeting that best fits their schedule. The off-campus studies process is definitely a team effort between the student and the OCS staff. Important information shared at a First Step meeting helps identify the student's options and next steps.
Visit Whitman's Annual Off-Campus Studies (OCS) Fair held in the end of October in Reid Campus Center Ballroom. The Annual Off-Campus Studies (OCS) Fair is an opportunity to speak directly with program representatives, Whitman OCS alums and the OCS staff - all in one location - the Reid Ballroom. This is a great time to explore your OCS options. You can pick up program brochures, talk with individuals about their programs and experiences, and find answers to our study abroad questions.
Discuss your off-campus study plans with your Major Adviser
Submit Whitman Off-Campus Study (OCS) Application and Program Application(s) by the early February for Fall and Academic Year off-campus study.
