Away Electives: The site I want has a different schedule than Columbia. How do I schedule my electives there AND here?

Start by requesting flexibility in the dates from the away site to match your Columbia schedule.

With prior approval from Dr. Amiel, students can buffer the dates of the away elective with Scholarly Projects.

Students can all buffer the dates with Vacation/Interviews.

If the site is not flexible with the dates, and you cannot use Vacation/SP to buffer, please submit a ticket via 'OPEN TICKET: Contact P&S Education' so that we can provide further advising.

It is not advised that students request adjusting Columbia electives if Vacation or Scholarly Projects can be used instead.
