- Students need to think about the option of junior year away during their sophomore year as they begin the process of considering major fields and course requirements. Many students want to study at another college or university, in this country or abroad, during their undergraduate education.
- All students in good standing with no deficiencies, including financial aid recipients, may study away on approved programs during all or part of the junior year. Financial aid is available for eligible recipients, but students must confer with that office. Academic credit is earned after evidence of the satisfactory completion of the program. A student wishing to enroll in another institution or program in this country or abroad, and to transfer credits earned on this program to Williams, must consult with Laura McKeon and the appropriate department chair early in the Fall Semester of the sophomore year. Students are responsible for reading the Guide to Study Abroad . They should also consult faculty members with expertise in the area or region of interest to them. All students who are curious about the off-campus study option should browse through the reference library in the Dean’s Office and attend one of the general information meetings which Dean McKeon offers throughout the autumn and in February. After attending an information session, students may schedule an appointment with the Dean. A study away plan is approved by the chair of the student’s major department, Dean McKeon, and the Committee on Academic Standing. Students wishing to study away for any portion of the junior year must submit a study away petition to Dean McKeon by the March deadline of the sophomore year.
- If you receive academic or other accommodations at Williams for a disability, you can request those while away from Williams as well (although you are not required to do so). To explore this option, talk with Dr. Joyce Foster, Director of Academic Resources, well in advance of departing for your program, so that she can provide a letter to your program explaining the accommodations you receive at Williams.
- When a student has decided to accept an offer of admission from a program, he or she must notify the Dean’s Office. The Committee on Academic Standing will make a final decision at that time. Students must attend a pre-departure meeting and meet all the guidelines as directed in the Guide to Study Abroad. Upon return to Williams, students are required to complete a program evaluation form before they can receive Study Away credit on their Williams transcript and meet with Dean McKeon.
