Pennsylvania State University encourages academically qualified students with disabilities to achieve full participation and integration in its educational programs. It is Penn State's policy not to discriminate against qualified persons with disabilities in its admissions policies and procedures or its educational programs, services, and activities. The University encourages students with disabilities to participate fully in its educational programs.
Individuals who are seeking academic adjustments and/or auxiliary aids must self-disclose their need for academic adjustments and/or auxiliary aids to the Penn State location at which they are enrolled. To be eligible for academic adjustments and/or reasonable auxiliary aids, students must have a documented disability as defined by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 or the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), 1990. The ADA defines a disability as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity.
NOTE: The purpose of this form is to notify students that academic adjustments and/or auxiliary aids are available at all locations of Penn State University. Completion of this form will result in contact from the Penn State College of Medicine. Additional information regarding services and interviews with the Disability Services Coordinator to identify the need for reasonable accommodation will be provided.
