Traveling with a disability can pose unique opportunities and challenges. IOS can work with students with disabilities as they prepare for their time off-campus – academically and personally. Know that there are many resources for you on and off campus as you prepare for, attend, and return from your program off campus. As you consider studying off campus, be sure to find out as much as you can about your host culture/community and how they view disability. We strongly encourage you to do your research, talk to your support networks, talk to IOS and Disability & Access in order to get more information about disability in the places you are hoping to travel.
Students can receive accommodations during off-campus study, but options may be different or more limited than they are at St. Olaf.
