Alternative Media

Disability Resource Services (DRS) provides media conversion of required course materials and textbooks to qualified students with disabilities. Converted materials provide equal access to the educational experience. Before requesting text conversion services, the student must complete and submit a Text Conversion Service Agreement acknowledging they understand the guidelines.

Students must complete a Text Conversion Request for each class which they need textbooks/materials converted for. Electronic copies of receipts may be uploaded to this form.
