Studying Abroad

Some students choose to participate in non-affiliated study abroad programs. Students may only do so during the summer term. Before enrolling in any summer program, it is the student's responsibility to determine implications for financial support, time to graduation, the applicability of courses for transfer and/or fullillment of NU-Q degree requirements, and academic accomodations.

As students participating in unaffiliated programs are not simultaneously enrolled at NU-Q, and elect to participate in courses at another institution outside of Northwestern, AccessibleNU-Q accomodations cannot be guaranteed since our laws governing disability rights don't have to be honored in other countries. 

If you're considering a program abroad but are concerned about how your condition may impact your travel or study, please discuss this with your trip advisor or other university staff.  Additional resources include Mobility International USA and Diversity Abroad.
