Accommodating Disabilities

Duke Immerse is committed to inclusion on its semester programs. We work closely with Duke’s Student Disability Access Office (SDAO) to help students with disabilities request and receive approved accommodations on study away programs to the extent that they can be arranged, given local/foreign laws, infrastructure, and other considerations. 

Please understand that we cannot guarantee that every approved accommodation can be implemented in every program location. 

Because it may take time and planning to arrange accommodations, we encourage you to meet with staff in the SDA office as soon as possible. Communicate with your potential faculty or the Duke Immerse Director needs and questions or concerns you have should about an individual program. 

If it should become apparent at any point in these conversations that your preferred program cannot reasonably accommodate your specific needs, we will closely work with you to explore other program options that may fit both your interests and needs.
