While Away

The journey might be the destination, as they say, but the destination is also a journey!

Upon arrival to your program/university, please let someone at home or Bowdoin know that you’ve made it safely.

Next, fill out the two required OCS forms. These forms are short, mandatory, and online, not to mention critical to your academic approval and support in case of emergency. These forms are your responsibility to complete in a timely manner! Complete instructions are available at the start of each form.

Please reference our International Travel Handbook as a resource for Bowdoin students traveling abroad, either as part of an off-campus study semester or summer, or an international research opportunity, travel grant, or any other international travel associated with Bowdoin.
