In the Office of Off-Campus Study (OCS) we believe that academic opportunities to discover, familiarize, and engage with other citizens and cultures challenge our students to rethink the way they look at the world. Through academic coursework and internships both in the U.S. and abroad, off-campus study can enhance a student's ability to cultivate respect and understanding of self and of others, while learning the skills necessary to become global leaders.
The Office of Off-Campus Study serves Claremont McKenna College through:
- Managing a portfolio of domestic and worldwide academic programs
- Working directly with students in both group and individual settings to ensure student academic, professional and personal goals can be accomplished through the selected off-campus study program
- Supporting students through the off-campus study process of applying, preparing, arriving, adjusting, concluding and returning to Claremont
The Off-Campus Study Office is located in Heggblade Center. Office hours are 8:00a.m.-12:00p.m. and 1:00-5:00p.m. Please telephone or visit our office to make an appointment.
