Level of Support: USAC, Accra, Ghana
On-Site Staff:The University of Ghana has a USAC program that provides support for students while abroad. The on-site USAC Resident Director helps you secure housing in one of the university residence halls. USAC coordinates a group flight option for students arriving from the U.S. and the Resident Director will arrange an airport-pickup service for those students. Upon arrival, the Resident Director will hold an orientation to help you adjust to your new surroundings. The Resident Director is there as much or as little as a student may need them. Throughout the semester, USAC hosts two field trips, both of which are included in the program fees, as well as other tours that are offered at an additional charge.
Health & Disability Resources:Medical facilities in Ghana are limited and you will be provided with information regarding local health facilities during orientation on-site. It is recommended that you work with the Study Abroad Coordinator in advance if you are interested in seeing a therapist during your time in Ghana.
USAC will do their best to accommodate any disabilities, but services cannot be guaranteed or may be different than what you are used to in the United States. Please contact the Study Abroad Coordinator to begin exploring what services might be available to you.
More Information:If you still have questions on level of support, you can contact the Study Abroad Coordinator, Jenna Krosch (email@example.com)
After acceptance into the program, you will obtain more information about services, at your program location, in your program guide and in orientation materials.
