Study Abroad Advisory of Student Risk

Participation in this UCSC Study Abroad program requires travel to and extended living in a foreign location(s) abroad. UCSC Study Abroad endeavors to reduce and mitigate risk wherever possible. However, the environments and risks associated with living in these locations are substantially different than those found during a regular course of study at UC Santa Cruz. Any questions should be directed to the Program Coordinator.

Students with Disabilities

If you need support services abroad, notify your UCSC Disability Resource Center (DRC) Coordinator for a needs assessment immediately so that services can be requested and Study Abroad can investigate the availability of accommodations abroad. Support services similar to those available at UCSC might not be available.

Identities Abroad and Away

UCSC Study Abroad encourages all students to consider studying abroad as a part of their academic plan. Our office is committed to inclusion and equity in our various program options as well as striving to make everyone’s experiences abroad enriching, positive, and safe. It is important to consider and anticipate the possible challenges you might face. For example, if your major identifying characteristic is race at home, it may surprise you that the people around you while you are abroad could find your nationality (perhaps US citizen) to be more significant. What rights do Queer people have in your host country? Will you be a minority or part of the majority abroad? Please visit our Identities Abroad and Away resource page to learn more about important questions to consider and how to prepare for studying abroad.
