Passports

A valid passport is required for travel to Uganda and is the responsibility of each student. Early application is recommended. Contact the nearest State Department Office or Post Office for further information. Information regarding visa requirements may be found at the Uganda Embassy website or by contacting the program director. 

Access for Persons with Disabilities

Student housing does provide accessibility for persons with disabilities.  However, students with disabilities should be aware that the Uganda Christian University (UCU) campus and the country of Uganda generally do not provide access to the same extent as in the United States.  While persons with disabilities should be able to access guest housing, classrooms, and most administrative buildings at UCU, there may be some limited circumstances where students will have difficulty accessing facilities.  Additionally, some government buildings that students will visit during the program and other locations for recreational activities off campus may not have full access.  The program director will take any steps necessary to ensure that favorable accommodations will be made, but students with disabilities should contact the program director prior to registering for the program to discuss any particular concerns.  Please see additional disclosures and information for persons with disabilities at the Other Information and Disclosures page.
