Access and Diversity
Students of all abilities are encouraged to apply to study abroad. Although the Americans with Disabilities Act does not apply outside the borders of the United States, the College is committed to assisting you in the process of inquiring about reasonable accommodations overseas. Students who receive accommodations at Bryn Mawr and who are interested in studying abroad are encouraged to reach out to the Director of Global Education and/or to the Director of Access Services as soon as possible to discuss questions and/or concerns. Our offices are committed to working closely together to support you in the process of studying abroad.
