- Students with disabilities are encouraged to pursue opportunities to study off campus. If you have a documented disability that may require assistance while you are studying away from Grinnell, contact Joyce Stern in Academic Advising ([sternjm], x3702) to arrange for the review of your documentation and coordination of services. In consultation with Joyce Stern, the Off-Campus Study Office will work with the local program director to arrange accommodations necessary during your time away. Accommodations, facilities and services vary from country to country, so it's helpful to provide as much advance warning as possible.
