Start at Onondaga Community College and you can go just about anywhere-literally. Our Study Abroad program will provide you with opportunities to explore distant places as you discover your own place in the world. Take a semester or the whole summer. Study a foreign language. Learn firsthand about other cultures. Make lifelong friends.
Since Onondaga Community College is an institution within the State University of New York system, OCC students may participate in many of the numerous SUNY study abroad programs. However, students accepted to a SUNY overseas program still register at OCC. If eligible, financial aid may be used to pay for these programs.
It is important to note that you have to plan ahead if you are interested in studying abroad. For example, financial aid must be filed by October 15 for Spring semester and February 15 for Fall sessions. In addition, various overseas programs have early admissions deadlines. You need to start your preparation a semester in advance of when you want to go abroad.
You must be at least 18 years of age. You must have completed 30 credit hours. You must have a minimum GPA of 2.5. You must have a written faculty recommendation. Other qualifications may apply by program.
