Meet the Academic Advising and Student Disabilities Services Team

The World Campus Academic Advising & Student Disability Services team is committed to supporting students in achieving their academic goals.  Whether you call the office with a general question or need a connection, set-up an appointment with your academic adviser to discuss courses and degree program, or want to learn more about accommodations to support learning from Student Disability Services, the professional staff is always a resource for students on their academic journey.

Everyone in Academic Advising & Student Disability Services has unique backgrounds, inspirations, and reasons why they love Penn State and working with World Campus students.  Click the links below to learn more about each team member!

Undergraduate students can find the name and contact information for their adviser in LionPATH or Starfish and can make an appointment with their adviser through Starfish.  If you don’t think you’ve been assigned an academic adviser, please contact Academic Advising & Student Disability Services so that we can get you connected.
