Study Abroad

Students with disabilities participate in study abroad programs and international experiences around the world. Just as cultures differ, so does the degree of access and readily available disability services in the many countries and communities a student might consider for his/her study abroad or international experience. There are many study abroad programs and international experiences in which students with disabilities have successfully participated however, not every such program or experience is a good fit from an accessibility perspective.

The key to a successful experience is planning. To maximize the opportunity to travel abroad and study internationally, it is essential that students allocate a minimum of six months (preferably up to one year) in advance of their travel to plan for accommodations, regardless of the type of disability.

Students must work with the  Access Services Coordinator, the Director of Health Services, if appropriate or needed, the Study Abroad Office, and any host program/institution. Please note that all requests for services and accommodations must be supported by the documentation on file and be reasonable and appropriate within the limits set forth by state and federal law and university procedure. The university will make efforts to assist students with finding reasonable accommodations to participate in the program. The accommodations cannot fundamentally alter the nature of a course or program of study or present an undue hardship for either the university or any host institution.

Although many countries are becoming more aware of the needs of people with disabilities, not all countries have similar laws and accessible infrastructure/services. Consequently, requests which may be reasonable in a domestic context may not fall into that category in the international context in light of available resources.

Another option would be to contact a provider in your home area. We suggest that you contact your insurance company before scheduling the evaluation.

Ask if educational testing for a learning disability, ADD, or ADHD is covered.

You may also wish to contact Rehabilitation Services or the Work Force Center in your county. In Winona, the phone number is 507-453-2941.

Once you submit documentation of a disability to our office, you may be eligible for academic accommodations. Please send a copy of your documentation to the Access Services Coordinator, Mary Ann McCann, at mmccann@smumn.edu.
