All programs that are taught by a UM faculty instructor will accept the SSD accommodations (VISA) letter. Thus, when looking at programs, look at the “Overview” and “Courses and Credits” sections to see whether or not it is taught by a UM faculty instructor.

Click “Find a Program” on bottom right of Home site. You can narrow down your search to the type of traveling (work, study, volunteer), the country of interest, the kind of housing, specific courses, and more.

Check deadlines through MCompass as some deadlines may have already passed. If they have, don’t be dismayed—some programs are reoccurring, and you can apply next year.

One of the important things to remember when searching for which program is right for you and which will have accommodations is to Be Proactive!
