Applying for Services from the Office for Disability Services

Students who are seeking services at Penn State must self-disclose the need for academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, and/or services to the disability services office at the Penn State campus they are attending.

In order for a student's disorder or impairment to be considered a disability, the student must demonstrate through documentation that the disorder/impairment meets the definition of a disability under Title II of the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. A disability is defined as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.
