Start applying for programs:
  1. If you have submitted your Statement of Intent
  2. If you have been notified about your eligibility to study off-campus by the OCS via email 
You MUST select a program to begin.  You can search in the portal by region, location, academic focus, language of instruction; additionally, each program has a rich brochure page. After you have selected your program/university, click on the  “Apply” button. You will land on the application page where you will find links which require your response. You are not required to fill out all submissions at once as you can come back to your account at any time. You can only apply for one approved program in the online portal. 

REMEMBER:  once you select a program you must follow the application deadlines for your actual program, completing their applications, etc. according to their deadlines AND you MUST also complete the Colby Application for Approval which is due by February 20.

If you can't find a program/university in the portal, contact OCS. Non-approved programs require petition. See the petition guidelines here.


     February 20:  your Colby Application for Approval is due. 

     March 3:  this is a random/generic date used only in the Terradotta portal.  When applying to your program, you MUST follow the application deadline for your        actual program (within the program site)

Plan ahead and be mindful of the February 20th Colby Application for Approval deadline and also the deadlines for your program application.
