Moody Bible Institute will make reasonable attempts to accommodate students with disabilities; however, Moody is unable to guarantee that study abroad programs, host families, or residences in other countries will be able to offer the accommodations that students request.

Students with a documented disability are entitled by law to accommodations for their disabilities in the United States (US). In order for students to receive these accommodations in the US, the law requires that they file disability documentations with the Student Resource Center (SRC).

If students would like to request accommodations while studying abroad, they should report these accommodations to the Student Resource Center who will work with the Assistant Dean of Education Abroad to reasonable attempts to accommodate students’ needs while living and studying abroad.
