Upon admission to the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, please complete the following steps to register with the Office of Health and Counseling Services:

Disability Services

  • Schedule an appointment with a Disability Services staff member (G-10 Student Union) to register as a student with a disability. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the documentation you have regarding your specific disability and reasonable accommodations that may be granted.
  • Complete a Disability Services Registration Form (This will be completed at the scheduled appointment noted above.)
  • Provide current and appropriate documentation of your disability. Please see documentation guidelines on the main Disability Services page.
  • Meet regularly with the Disability Services staff to review the effectiveness of services received, to update information or to discuss changes in services. It is the responsibility of the student to schedule appointments with the Disability Services staff and alert them of any concerns with respect to their accommodations.

Important Note: Academic accommodations must be requested for each term you are enrolled. Accommodations are not automatically renewed.

Services are free of charge for students with qualifying disabilities who have registered with the Office of Disability Services.

The Office of Disability Services is available to assist in obtaining the necessary documentation by providing referrals to qualified professionals.
