Information for Students

The Office for Student Disability Resources (SDR) is the designated office that provides reasonable accommodations and services to students with disabilities who are enrolled at the University Park location. In addition, Penn State has a disability services office at every Penn State campus that provides accommodations and services for students with disabilities. Each designated office requests and maintains disability-related documents; certifies eligibility for services; determines and develops plans for reasonable accommodations such as academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, and/or services as mandated under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Welcome to Student Disability Resources at Penn State Altoona. At Penn State, we are committed to providing a welcoming, encouraging, and empowering environment for students with disabilities to ensure equal access, full participation and reasonable accommodations for their academic pursuits. Student Disability Resources is responsible for coordinating support services, reasonable academic accommodations, and promoting disability awareness in the university community. I encourage you to consider participation on the Penn State Altoona Student Disability Resources Advisory Board if you would like to have a more active role in enhancing the services to students at Penn State Altoona who receive services. Please contact the Health and Wellness Center at healthandwellness@psu.edu or 814-949-5540 for additional information.
