St. Olaf offers a variety of affiliated off-campus programs. They are consortial programs, exchanges, and provider programs that have been selected for their academic excellence and their fit with the St. Olaf curriculum. All programs have been approved by the St. Olaf curriculum committee and offer St. Olaf resident credit, though grades are not calculated in the St. Olaf GPA.
