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

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