Level of Support: Semester at Sea 

On-Site Staff:

While on the ship, students will be surrounded by support services that they are used to on a US campus. There are resident directors, a Dean of Students, a Director of Student Life, and faculty that are sailing with the students too.

Health & Disability Resources:

On voyage, students will have access to health facilities. The medical staff on board are certified US health professionals. Upon arrival into each port, all students are briefed on certain health and safety items related to the country they are arriving into. 

On each voyage, Semester at Sea has two licensed clinical psychologists that can provide mental health support to students.

Semester at Sea 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 since you will be sailing on a ship while classes are in session. 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 (

After acceptance into the program, you will obtain more information about services, at your program location, in your program guide and in orientation materials.
