Disability Resources

DIS is committed to working with students with disability accommodations needs in partnership with the student’s home university.

Disability Accommodations

In this section, you can find information about the DIS approach to accommodation requests, how to fill out Part 2 of the Health Information form in Student Registration, and the roles of the student, home university, and DIS in accommodations.

If you have any accommodation questions, you are also encouraged to contact the DIS North American office by writing HealthAccommodation@DISabroad.org.
