Fall 2021

Please email Dr. Lou Ann Sears at los3@pitt.edu to inquire about Disability Services at Pitt-Greensburg. It is never too late to do this.

This Fall, Dr. Sears’s availability will be: Monday through Friday 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM.

Although her last day for the 2020 – 2021 year was June 30, 2021, she will check email twice a week.

To request a Disability Services-related Zoom appointment, please email Dr. Sears. Email is the way to reach her.

If you require classroom accommodations for Fall 2021 and are already registered for Disability Services at Pitt-Greensburg, please return the Request for Accommodations Form (first page only) and the Permission Form for Fall 2021. This is important even if you have requested accommodations in the past. If you did not receive those forms or you need another copy, please email Dr. Sears at los3@pitt.edu.

If you have a disability for which you are or may be requesting an accommodation, you are encouraged to contact both:

  • your instructor
  • Dr. Lou Ann Sears (Director of Learning Resources Center, Disability Services provider), Room 240 Millstein Library Building*

as early as possible in the term. Learning Resources Center will determine reasonable accommodations for your course(s). Email is the way to reach Dr. Sears: los3@pitt.edu.

* In Fall 2021, she will be back on campus.

In July and August (when Dr. Sears is on break), she will check email twice a week. Students interested in Disability Services should contact Ms. Beth Tiedemann in Millstein Library office 103: tiedeman@pitt.edu or 724-836-7182 if they have not received a response from Dr. Sears.

Disability Guideline Sheets

If you have an IEP that includes test scores and substantiates the requested accommodations, Learning Resources Center will look at it. If the IEP does not have test scores and does not substantiate the requested accommodations, you will be asked to provide additional documentation. See guideline sheets below.

Below is a list of Disability Guideline Sheets available.
