TCU Supports Study Abroad!  Your program fee reflects financial support from TCU to make your experience more affordable.

Physical Demands
Study Abroad programs often include field components that require the ability to perform tasks beyond what is expected in a typical classroom. Many programs require extensive walking and/or the ability to stand for extended periods of time; the ability to independently use public transportations and/or sleeping in shared quarters.
Some programs take place in remote locations, far away from modern conveniences. This field work may require travel in open vehicles; hiking long distances or over uneven terrain; working in rivers, swamps or other bodies of water; sleeping on the ground; and/or spending time with wildlife.  In some locations, medical access may be limited.

Prior to applying to specific Study Abroad programs, a student should review the physical requirements for each program to ascertain whether the student will be able to participate in all activities of the program. Students needing accommodations should see the information under “Students with Disabilities.”

Students with Disabilities
TCU encourages all students, including students with disabilities, to actively participate in the Study Abroad programs offered by the University. Just as cultures differ from country-to-country, so does the perception of disabilities and accommodations. Some countries have a broad range of services available to individuals with disabilities, while others may offer limited disabilities’ accommodations. Students who may need accommodations to participate in a Study Abroad program should contact the Center for Academic Services – Student Disabilities Services (CAS-DS) to discuss options and requests for accommodations.
Please note that foreign countries do not have to comply with the public access requirements of the ADA and there may be physical or other barriers that impair equal access to medical care; lodgings; restaurants; businesses and other buildings; and/or services/facilities in foreign locales. Students with disabilities are strongly encouraged to research the access and service limitations of the locales to be visited.  Additionally, a student may want to meet with a disabilities specialist in CAS-DS office to discuss resources and concerns.
Students who need to request accommodations should contact the CAS-DS office early in the planning process.  Some accommodations require additional time to research and implement.  To receive an accommodation, a student must be registered with the CAS-DS office.  Information on policies, procedures and documentation guidelines can be found at If a student fails to disclose the need for accommodations prior to departure, his/her ability to complete the planned program may be jeopardized and require program termination. 
For additional information please contact the Center for Academic Services- Student Disabilities Services at 817-257-6567 or in Sadler hall 1010.
