Frequently Asked Questions

How do I make arrangements for books in Braille, on tape or diskette?

Make an appointment with your professors and the service provider on your campus several weeks before your courses begin and discuss your accommodations. A faculty department secretary usually can tell you who will be teaching your course. Develop a schedule with the professor to determine when you will need a specific chapter or article in an alternative format and work with the disability services office to ensure that the materials reach you in a timely manner. It will be important to receive reading lists from professors well in advance, so you will have alternative format materials when you need them.
