Welcome to the Office for Student Disability Resources (OSDR) at Penn State DuBois. 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 academic pursuits. The Office for Student Disability Resources is responsible for coordinating support services and reasonable academic accommodations, and promoting disability awareness in the university community.
Penn State DuBois encourages all students to achieve full participation and integration into its educational programs. It is Penn State’s policy not to discriminate against qualified persons with disabilities in its admissions policies or in its educational programs, services, and activities.
At every Penn State location, there is an Office for Student Disability Resources designated to provide services for students with disabilities. Each designated office requests and maintains disability-related documents; certifies eligibility for services; determines academic adjustments, auxiliary aids and/or services; and develops plans for the provision of academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, and/or services, as mandated under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
In order to obtain academic adjustments, aids, and/or services, a student must be registered with this office. All information is kept confidential.
