Parents & Families

Thanks for taking the time to learn more about Dartmouth off-campus programs!  More than half of all Dartmouth undergraduate students participate in an off-campus program before they graduate and we are delighted your student wants to be a part of one of these uniquely tailored experiences. 

First and foremost our office makes every effort to ensure that your student is at the center of all decision and information processing that is required in order to participate in an off-campus program.  Therefore, we encourage you to speak with your student about their decision to study off-campus.  Please encourage your student to communicate directly with our staff regarding your questions or concerns. That said, we put together an overview of the study abroad process, included some helpful links, and a few resources such as tips for parents and family to give you a better idea of how you can best support your student before, during, and after they study away.
