Study Abroad, Off-Campus Studies, and Internships

Studying Abroad or Off-Campus

George Fox University offers a wide range of opportunities for off-campus study, including study in foreign countries, exchanges with sister schools around the United States, and the Juniors Abroad program.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to plan early for these opportunities since host sites are not always experienced in providing accommodations.

  1. Contact Disability & Accessibility Services (DAS) at George Fox before applying to one of these programs
  2. Receive approval for accommodations from DAS at George Fox
  3. Work with DAS to confirm the program's primary activities and living conditions are compatible with student's needs

Internships and Field Experiences

Some students benefit from arranging accommodations with their internship, field experience, or clinical site. Students planning to start internships, field experiences, or off-site clinical rotations should begin the accommodation process as early as possible, preferably a semester ahead of the start of the field experience.

  1. Contact Disability & Accessibility Services to discuss the situation
  2. Review the Responsibilities document
  3. Complete the Field Experience Accessibility Plan

The list below is a non-exhaustive list of field experience activities or environment that might raise barriers for some students, and thus might need accommodations arranged.
