FALL ABROAD =
Off-Campus Study Stipend
Students who study abroad in the fall get $1,600 to help cover additional costs.
Fall is lovely in Upstate New York, but it’s also lovely in Paris, Madrid, Cape Town, Seoul, Sydney, and Auckland.
Choosing to study in the fall means you have the entire summer to prepare.
Deadlines for fall semester programs are more flexible, including those for non-approved petitions.
Jobs & Internships
Studying abroad in the fall puts you back on campus for spring interviews.
When you study off-campus in the fall, you can choose to extend for the full year.
Easier Course Registration
Just like with housing, less people on campus means more room in the classes you want to take.
There’s more room on campus during the spring to get the housing you want.
I was at a place during Sophomore year where I just really needed something different (sophomore slump anyone?) and it felt like the right time to take a semester abroad.Sydney Tennant
Going abroad for the full year has been the best decision I have ever made because it made me realize things about myself I would never know just by sitting around at Skidmore.Renato Dornelas
