If you have a history of a physical disability (e.g., asthma, chronic disease, diabetes, eating disorder, epilepsy, hearing loss, mobility issues) or psychological disability (e.g., anxiety attacks, depression, drug or alcohol dependency), you should seriously consider the impact studying abroad might have on your life.

If you have a learning disability, you are strongly encouraged to discuss your needs with your Education Abroad Coordinator well in advance of your departure. Do not wait until after classes have begun or, worse yet, until finals to mention you may need special accommodations. The Coordinator can guide you in contacting your host institution to request accommodations.
Laws, resources and circumstances vary from country to country. Not all accommodations, even those to which you have become accustomed in the United States, will be available in all programs. You may want to investigate the available options before deciding on a particular country or program.
