Welcome

In accordance with Penn State Policy on Accommodations, the Eberly College of Science will post captioned videos for those requesting accommodation for the specified semesters only.

Accommodating Disabilities:

Penn State welcomes students with disabilities into the University's educational programs. Every Penn State campus has an office for students with disabilities. The Office for Disability Services (ODS) Web site provides contact information for every Penn State campus: http://equity.psu.edu/ods/dcl . For further information, please visit the Office for Disability Services Web site: http://equity.psu.edu/ods.

In order to receive consideration for reasonable accommodations, you must contact the appropriate disability services office at the campus where you are officially enrolled, participate in an intake interview, and provide documentation: http://equity.psu.edu/ods/guidelines. If the documentation supports your request for reasonable accommodations, your campus’s disability services office will provide you with an accommodation letter. Please share this letter with your instructors and discuss the accommodations with them as early in your courses as possible. You must follow this process for every semester that you request accommodations.

Penn State encourages academically qualified students with disabilities to participate in its educational programs. We are committed to equal opportunity in our admissions policies and procedures and are dedicated to providing reasonable accommodations for qualified students.

Penn State students seeking special services or academic accommodations through Penn State must self-disclose their need for these services or accommodations to the World Campus or Penn State's Office for Disability Services (ODS).Contact Penn State's Office for Disability Services (ODS).

To be eligible for academic accommodations through ODS, students must have a documented disability as defined by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 or the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. Learn more about the ODS eligibility requirements.

The University is responsible for making all its programs and services available to all students. The Office for Disability Services acts in an advisory capacity for all Penn State locations, including the World Campus. The World Campus will work with ODS to make reasonable academic adjustments or accommodations for eligible World Campus students.

Penn State's guidelines for appropriate documentation—and the verification forms necessary for each disability category—may be obtained from the "Documentation Guidelines and General Information for Students with Specific Conditions" section of the ODS Web site. For more information, contact ODS.
