If you will be living in a homestay in Chile, France, Italy, or Spain, SU Abroad needs to know about anything that may affect your living arrangements—for example, allergies to pets or cigarette smoke, or special diets (salt-free, vegetarian, kosher). Though not all dietary needs can be fully met, the staff will make an effort to accommodate them when possible.
It is not always possible to provide households that are fully vegetarian or totally smoke-free. Whenever you can, you should be prepared to be flexible.
A voluntary disclosure form, part of the SU Abroad Medical History – Accommodations Request is among your post-acceptance materials. Students who wish to inform SU Abroad of disabilities and request accommodations should complete this form and submit directly to the SU Abroad Case Manager. Instructions for submission are located on the form.
For more information about university services to assist students with disabilities, students should contact the director of the Office of Disability Services, at 315-443-4498 (voice) or 315-443-1372 (TDD/TTY). For more information regarding study abroad and disabilities, consult Mobility International USA.
If you have a learning disability, we ask you to document your disability and let SU Abroad know well in advance that you may need accommodation. Students who wish to inform SU Abroad of their learning disabilities and request accommodations should fill out part B of SU Abroad Medical History – Accommodations Request, available with your post-acceptance materials, and return it to the SUA Case Manager.
