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, you are well advised to discuss it with the Assistant Dean of Students for Disability Services & Academic Success before departure. Together, you can develop a treatment plan and partner with the Off-Campus Study staff 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 Office of Off-Campus Study to assist you in this discussion.
