Coursework Accommodations

If your disability affects your coursework, the DRC can put coursework accommodations in place. These accommodations can relate to reading and writing support, assisting with a more flexible timeline, consideration for alternate content and more. While the following list describes more common accommodations, it is not exhaustive. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.

    Alternate Media Production Services

  • While we are still under COVID-19 shelter-in-place and the limitations from maintaining social distancing, you are not required to personally come into the office to drop off a book for conversion. If you would like to drop off a book at the office, you may make an appointment with us to do so.
    Please remember to fill out the Alternate Media Request Form as soon as you have your finalized courses. Below are important reminders and guidelines regarding the process of your requests, please read them carefully.
     
    Important reminders when submitting a request: 
    • A proof of purchase/access must be submitted to complete the request form and for us to share files of the texts you are requesting. We accept any of the following as proof:
      • Receipt(s)
      • Picture of the book(s)
      • Email confirmation indicating you are a recipient of the EOP - Textbook Lending Library program
      • PDF files of the text or reading (Please email this separately to us)
    • Be sure to include the weekly reading schedules for your courses when uploading the syllabus. This helps us to prioritize specific reading assignments that are due for you.
    • For unavailable books that we do not have in our electronic library:
      • We will purchase a physical copy of the book to de-spine and scan. OR
      • You may schedule a time with us to drop off your books at the DRC office. 
    • If you have questions or are unsure of the different file formats for your requests, please feel free to email us and set up an appointment to discuss your specific needs.
    Guidelines for Canvas Requests:
    Canvas requests are mainly for courses that have all or the majority of the required readings such as articles or documents, posted on Canvas. If you need several articles converted into an alternate format, please notify your instructors ahead of time as we will need their approval to ask for access to their course module through the Faculty Instructional Technology Center. This is the most efficient way to process large amounts of readings but you or your professor may also directly share or email us specific files that are needed for conversion.
    Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns regarding your requests! We are happy to help out!
