Study Abroad

As an Onondaga Community College student, you have an opportunity to add an exciting international dimension to your education. While a student at Onondaga, you can elect to study abroad in countries throughout the world for a few weeks, an entire semester, or during the summer.

On the Onondaga campus: Students have the opportunity to participate in a study abroad experience attached to a class. Most recently, the courses that offered study abroad were in Art History, Sociology, History, Nursing, and Spanish. Information about each trip is found in the course description "comments" section on Webaccess. Contact the department directly or Academic Services, 315-498-7270, for more information.

On other campuses within the State University of New York (SUNY): Since Onondaga Community College is an institution within the SUNY system, Onondaga students may also participate in many of the numerous SUNY study abroad programs. If you're eligible, financial aid may be used to pay for these programs. To check out the programs available through the SUNY consortium visit the SUNY Study Abroad website.

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 the Spring semester and February 15 for Fall sessions. In addition, various overseas programs have early admissions deadlines. You need to start your preparations at least one to two semesters in advance of when you want to go abroad.
