Students in Need of Accommodations

Updated information, including 2017 forms and deadlines, will be posted here when available soon.

If you have accommodation needs due to a disability, be sure to  work closely with the Accessibility Services Office before embarking on a study abroad program to discuss accommodation needs. Whenever possible, we strive to ensure a valuable and rewarding abroad experience.

Studying abroad can be an important part of your educational experience at Harvard. It is important for students to recognize and understand that although the University provides reasonable assistance and support to facilitate participation of qualified students in its programs (including students with disabilities and health impairments), some of our programs are located in parts of the world where accommodations may not be readily available.

To ensure the best possible outcome it is vital that you contact the Accessibility Services Office staff about any specific needs and functional limitations you may have as soon as possible. The Accessibility Services Office collaborates with the Summer School and students studying abroad to foster safe and equal participation in their chosen program. 

Request Accommodations 

To make your request, submit a copy of your documentation and a request-for-accommodation form to the Accessibility Services Office. 

Please note: Accommodations do not automatically transfer from Harvard College. Harvard College students must register with the Summer School Accessibility Services Office
