Students with Disabilities

Students with disabilities are encouraged to pursue opportunities to study off campus. If you have a documented disability and may require accommodation while you are on your program, contact Academic Advising to discuss the services that you will need.  Autumn Wilke is the Coordinator for Disability Resources. The OCS Office and Coordinator for Disability Resources can help explore the possible arrangements, bearing in mind the different economic, legal, cultural and logistical realities in which off-campus study programs operate.

You are encouraged, but not required to notify Academic Advising and the OCS Office prior to submitting the Grinnell Approval Application to Study Off Campus. Disability status or accommodations are not considered in the Grinnell Approval Application process. At a minimum, students should be prepared to let a program provider know about needs as soon as possible after receiving Grinnell approval to study off-campus. Students should be prepared to adjust plans if certain accommodations cannot be met.

The college website offers information on disability resources for students.
