Students must work closely with the global education office and complete
all application materials. A Hampshire College exchange form will be
issued to students if they have been accepted to an exchange program.
A meeting with the advisor (Division II or Division III chair) who will
be supervising the work during the exchange should occur at an early
stage. If this is a Division III exchange, this planning meeting must be
followed by a meeting with the Division III counselor in CASA.
After the project has been planned, it must be put in written
form. A copy of the Division II concentration statement or a
preliminary Division III plan should be attached. A
written agreement between the student and the faculty supervisor
outlining the obligations each is willing to undertake is an
important part of the form. A statement about how and when the
work will be evaluated should also be included.
Filing for exchange requires the signature of the following people:
academic advisor; the housing coordinator; the manager of student
accounts; the director of financial aid (for financial aid students);
the director of global education (for students traveling outside the
United States); and, finally, a dean in the Center for Academic
Support and Advising.
Any exchange for which final approval has not been received will
