Each year, Grinnell students are accepted into a wide range of off-campus study programs throughout the world and elsewhere in the United States. Participation is open to all qualified students and possibilities for study exist in virtually all subject areas.

Off-Campus Study is an opportunity to broaden your liberal arts education and enhance your major, concentration or other areas of academic interest. Grinnell recognizes that living and studying in a new and challenging environment is a valuable learning experience that will be enriched by being closely integrated with your coursework on campus. You will also be able to pursue pre-professional and personal goals, gain cross-cultural skills, learn a new language or enhance your multilingual skills, gain new perspectives, build your resume, and meet new people. Working with your academic advisers and the OCS Office, you will find a program that complements and enhances your Grinnell education.
