Information for Faculty

Trinity faculty are critical to the success of students who are interested in studying away.  Study Away Advisors in the Office of Study Away encourage all students to meet with their academic advisors and mentors before making a decision to enroll in a specific study away program. 

More information about study away advising can be found on our Study Away Advising page.

Study Away & Trinity's Mission

Through high-quality advising and carefully-selected programs, Trinity College Study Away contributes to the college’s mission in three ways:
  • By providing well-designed study away experiences that extend the scope, and increase the depth, of the well-rounded liberal arts education that students begin in Hartford.
  • By identifying, or developing, programs that intentionally and effectively combine academic study with opportunities for civic engagement, cultural immersion, professional development, and/or structured extra-curricular development. 
  • By identifying, or developing, programs that take imaginative advantage of educational resources unique to their locations.

The Study Away Process

In order to study away for a semester or full year, students must complete a study away advising and approval process. Faculty can find a detailed outline for the process on our Study Away Process page.

For the Academic Year, or the Fall 2018 semester: students must complete the study away approval process by December 15

For the Spring 2019 semester:  students must complete the study away approval process by May 12

For Summer 2018: students do not need to complete the semester study away approval process, unless they are also planning on studying away for a semester or year. They should instead follow instructions to apply to the program that they are interested in by the deadline. Summer study away information, including programs and deadlines, can be found here.
