Study Abroad

Travel Courses

The DSC office is open throughout the summer.  Core business hours are 8:00-4:30 with early evening appointments available by request.  Each summer the DSC welcomes many returning USM students and students visiting from other colleges and universities across the country.  Accommodations are available for all summer session programs.  Summer courses are shorter in length and naturally have a faster pace than a traditional semester long course.  Students are encouraged to contact our office as soon as soon as they have registered for a summer course to request accommodations.  

DSC Registered Students

Current USM students and returning USM students previously registered with the DSC can renew their accommodations online by completing the online Accommodations Request Form located at the link below.  Once received, you will be e-mailed a copy of your Faculty Accommodations Letter within 5 business days.  Please note that if you have not taken classes at USM in several semesters, DSC recommends scheduling an orientation appointment with one our counselors to learn about any changes since your last date of attendance.  To schedule an orientation appointment, (207) 780-4706 or dsc-usm@maine.edu.
