Penn State encourages academically qualified students with disabilities to take advantage of its educational programs. It is the policy of the University not to discriminate against the disabled in its admission policies, procedures or its educational programs, services, and activities. No qualified student with a disability may be excluded from participation in or denied the benefits of any course or course of study on the basis of disability.
Applicants to Penn State or prospective students who wish to request accommodations based on a disability should contact the Disability Contact Liaison. Students requesting accommodations must complete requested intake forms and participate in an intake interview. Documentation supporting the request for accommodations must be submitted and cannot be more than three years old. Documentation is specific to the type of disability that a student has. Individual Education Plans (IEP's) from high school are not acceptable.
The Disability Contact Liaison at Penn State Lehigh Valley is Linda Rumfield. She may be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 610-285-5124. Additional information may be obtained from the Office for Disability Services homepage at www.equity.psu.edu/ods/.
