International Programs

International Programs manages the United Nations semester, Washington semester and Campaign semester and education abroad (study and research) and provides specialized services to international students and scholars.

All study abroad during the academic year or during college vacation periods and all student travel sponsored by the College must be pre-approved by International Programs. Generally, eligibility includes good academic and conduct standing and a 3.0 GPA. Specific programs may have additional eligibility or pre-requisites.

Credits earned abroad during fall or spring semester are considered in-residence Occidental credits and therefore count in the GPA and honors calculations. Summer/winter study abroad is transfer credit. College Financial Aid transfers to fall and spring semester study abroad, but not summer study abroad.
