Planning for Health & Disability Support Abroad

Goucher College is committed to providing resources and information on health-related issues for our students. Increased concerns about health and safety abroad have prompted the Office of International Studies (OIS) to create this website, which includes H1N1 Flu updates and information about Disability Support Services.  Please feel free to contact OIS if you have any questions.


All students are expected to make a good faith effort to complete Goucher’s study abroad requirement. Students may request necessary on-site accommodations including an exemption from the study abroad requirement. Such requests will be received by the Office of Accessibility Services via online form submission beginning in January 2020 and will be reviewed by the director of OAS, the director of OIS, and/or health and counseling services, residential life, and other campus offices as needed. Students requesting accommodations during Fall 2019 may contact the director of the Office of International Studies to submit an accommodation request, which will be reviewed according to the process outlined above.
