Students who have a documented print disability may request a copy of their textbooks in alternative format from Student Disability Services. Alternate formats include e-text, audio, large print, Braille, or other formats. Student Disability Services will work to get texts in the format that works best for you. Requesting textbooks in an alternate format can be a lengthy process. Please be aware that although some texts can be acquired quickly, the process can take up to three weeks, so do not delay in submitting your request.
If a textbook in alternate format is not readily available, you will need to bring your book to the Student Disability Services office (SDS) so we can cut the binding, scan the book, and convert the book into electronic text. This conversion can take several days depending upon the time of year.
