Studying Abroad with Disabilities

The School of Global Learning is dedicated to helping all students achieve their education abroad goals. If you are a student with a documented disability there are many options for you to participate in education abroad programs all over the world. It is important for you to begin considering what types of accommodations you will need for a successful program. We encourage all students to come in and talk with an Education Abroad Advisor to discuss location options, program ideas and site-specific accommodation possibilities.

Even if you have never traveled before, education abroad is possible for students with disabilities. Please check out the resources below in addition to coming in and meeting with the Education Abroad Advisor.
