Students with Disabilities

Penn State welcomes students with disabilities into the University's educational programs. If you have a disability-related need for reasonable academic adjustments, contact the World Campus Disability Contact Liaison (DCL) or call 814-863-1807 (V/TTY).

How to Be Considered for Course Accommodations


Follow these steps to receive consideration for course accommodations.

  1. Contact the DCL and provide documentation. (See the documentation guidelines.)
  2. If the documentation supports the need for academic adjustments, the DCL will provide a letter identifying appropriate academic adjustments.
  3. Please share this letter and discuss the adjustments with your instructor as early in the course as possible.
  4. You must contact the DCL and request academic adjustment letters at the beginning of each semester.
