The ADA applies only within the United States. If you are participating in the Washington or Silicon Valley programs, your accommodations are applicable. If you are preparing for study abroad, many countries do not have comprehensive legislation similar to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). These countries may not recognize the special needs which affect individuals with physical, psychological, or learning disabilities. If you have a disability that might impact your experience abroad, we encourage you to discuss it with the Assistant Dean of Students for Disability Services & Academic Success before departure. Together, we can develop a plan and partner with the Center for Global Education to ensure you are well supported while abroad/away. Contact AccessibilityServices@cmc.edu if you would like to have your accommodation information shared with the Center for Global Education to assist you in this discussion.
