Resources for Students with Disabilities

Following guidance from Georgia Tech Administration and the University System of Georgia, the Office of International Education has implemented its continuity of operations plan.  This plan moves OIE to email and other internet-based forms of communication until further notice.  When you have questions or require support, please email the following contacts:
    International Students and Scholars:  info@oie.gatech.edu
    Education Abroad:  study.abroad@gatech.edu
    For all other inquiries, please refer to the staff list:  https://oie.gatech.edu/about-us

OIE remains committed to providing excellent service to all of our stakeholders.  We look forward to working with you virtually to continue supporting Tech's global mission. We appreciate your support and understanding as we and the rest of the world respond to the current public health crisis. 

The Office of International Education (OIE) is committed to supporting students with disabilities who seek
to participate in an international opportunity. Many countries hold varying cultural viewpoints on disabilities.
As a result, accommodations vary depending on cultural norms and country laws. While there are options
for student with disabilities, some destinations are better options than others based on accommodation needs.
An OIE advisor with the support of the Office of Disability Services will assist you in identifying a program
that will be able to provide the accommodations you need.

It is extremely important to start your program search early. Talk to OIE and the Office of Disability Services
about your accommodation needs at least six months before your departure. Please note that depending on
your needs, it may take longer to ensure that accommodations are in place for a given program.

If you have not done so yet, we encourage you to register your disability with GT’s Office of Disability Services.
