The Carleton OCS 25-26 Programs Are Live!

Our 2025-2026 Carleton Programs, which are sponsored and led by Carleton departments and faculty respectively, have been released. Their dates roughly align with the Carleton term or a two-week period during the winter or spring break, and, aside from airfare and visa expenses, the cost of attendance is the same as a term at Carleton. Check out the calendar and all that OCS has to offer!
