Off-Campus Academic Activities

Off-Campus activities are related to the academic program of the university and take place outside of the campus setting. These include field trips, internships, service learning, study abroad and exchange. This site provides CSU campuses with information about existing policies and resources pertaining to off-campus activities.

Off-Campus activities policies are developed and maintained by Academic Affairs in consultation with campuses as well as with other Chancellor's Office departments. Policies are reviewed periodically and updated as the need arises and as circumstances change. Questions regarding these policies should be directed to the Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.


The Chancellor's Office has developed an Off-Campus Activities Listserv that provides easy access to individuals from across the CSU who are responsible for developing policies and procedures pertaining to internships and field trips or those responsible for its management and implementation.
