Off-campus study is an opportunity open to sophomore, junior and senior students with appropriate academic preparation, motivation, and interest in the relevant area. 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.
Students in all major fields may participate in the India NYSICCSI program. Students must have completed at least one course with significant South Asia content before the program begins. Admission to programs is based on the quality of application. Candidates must present a coherent academic rationale for participation in the India NYSICCSI program and a record of academic performance that demonstrates ability to meet the challenges of off-campus study. The selection committee considers closely the candidate's rationale for participation and academic record as a whole. Candidates for the India NYSICCSI program must also present evidence of maturity, responsibility and cultural sensitivity.
