Students in all major fields may participate in off-campus programs: some programs have distinctive curricular strengths, but all are designed to enable students with a variety of interests to benefit from the experience of living and studying in a different cultural setting. Students currently on disciplinary, social, or academic probation are not eligible to apply for, or participate in, off-campus study programs. In addition, students with outstanding disciplinary fines, service hours and/or education program requirements are not eligible to participate in the program. Second-semester seniors must petition to participate.
This off-campus study program is an opportunity open to sophomore, junior and senior students. Students must complete the equivalent of at least one 200-level course of French before the beginning of the program.

It is designed to enable students with a variety of interests to benefit from the experience of living and studying in a different cultural setting.
The Global Francophone Cultures Program is open to, sophomores and juniors, and second-semester First Year students with appropriate academic preparation, motivation, and an interest in Francophone cultures. Candidates must present a coherent academic rationale for participation in the Global Francophone Cultures Program and a record of academic performance and social maturity that demonstrates their ability to meet the challenges of off-campus study.
