Pennsylvania College of Technology encourages qualified students with disabilities to take advantage of its educational programs and services.
The first step is to arrange for appropriate accommodations. A student with disabilities seeking accommodations must complete the following:
- Self-identify as an individual with a disability.
- Request needed accommodations.
- Provide documentation, from the appropriate professional, explaining how the disability limits participation in courses, programs, activities, and use of facilities.
Students with documented disabilities can rely on our office to explore and facilitate reasonable accommodations, academic adjustments, and/or auxiliary aids and services.
