Students who are seeking services through Student Disability Resources must self-disclose the need for academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, and/or services to the SDR office at the Penn State campus they are attending.
Students are encouraged to begin the process of registering with SDR as soon as they have accepted Penn State’s offer of admission. However, prospective students and parents/guardians are welcome to contact the SDR office at any time with questions about the registration process or to learn more about disability services at Penn State.
Step 1: Complete the online Introductory Questionnaire
- You will need to use your Penn State username and password when completing the questionnaire.
- Take your time and answer the questions as completely as possible.
- You may enter “I don’t know” or “Does not apply” as needed.
Note: If you receive a proxy error or internal server error message when accessing the form, please use a private/incognito web browser to resolve the issue.
Step 2: Provide Documentation
- Review Penn State’s Documentation Guidelines for information about the purpose of documentation and options for providing acceptable documentation.
- Upload your documentation using the secure SDR submission link OR submit it in person (214B Main Building).
- Please feel free to contact the SDR Coordinator directly if you have any questions about the documentation guidelines or submitting your documentation.
Note: SDR does not recommend using email to submit documentation because it is not a secure method of sharing information.
Step 3: Contact the SDR Coordinator to schedule your Intake Meeting
- Meetings may be held in-person or via Zoom.
