Students with Disabilities Abroad

 

If you are a student with a disability, you may feel unsure of how realistic education abroad is. For students with learning disabilities you may be have concerns about the academic accommodations that you will receive on a education abroad program. And for students with physical disabilities or otherwise, you need to consider what programs will be accessible and the support services you will receive during your study abroad experience. The Office of International Education encourages all students with these questions to come in and talk to us. You can make an appointment by emailing iegi@binghamton.edu . We can talk through your options and work together towards a solution. Communication about your concerns, questions and needs is absolutely key. We also encourage you to review the following resources which may be helpful in guiding your research and preparations for study abroad:
