Students with Disabilities

The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) applies in the United States; many countries do not have the levels of access available in the U.S. (i.e., historic buildings that do not have elevators). The Office of Disability Support Services (DSS) works with TWU staff and faculty as well as the staff at the overseas sites to provide reasonable accommodations where appropriate and feasible. According to the law, accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis and are not required if they would require a fundamental alteration of the program or would present an undue hardship to the university. If students are not able to perform the essential requirements of the course (with or without accommodations), then they are not qualified to participate in the program.

DSS Student Requirements

  • Meet the standard university eligibility requirements in applying for study abroad programs.
  • Begin planning for study abroad with the office of Disability Support Services at least one year before the planned trip to identify challenges existing in particular countries.
  • Be registered with the office of Disability Support Services in order to receive accommodations by the deadline for advance notice for study abroad. If the student chooses not to disclose any disability-related needs until abroad, he/she is subject to the same policies and procedures for course participation as any other student.
  • Identify disability-related potential barriers that could affect participation in the course, and consider the impact on:
    • Classroom participation
    • Housing
    • Transportation
    • Academic supports (i.e., testing, writing, and reading)
    • Health services (i.e., counseling, medication)
    • Assistive technology
