Submitting Alt Media Requests -
In order to receive course materials in alternate formats, you must be a current DSPS student with this approved accommodation.
If you feel that you are in need of additional accommodations, please call or stop by our office so we can better assist you.
Step 1 - Submit your Request for Services. For instructions on how to submit your Request for Services, please click here.
Step 2 - Once you are registered for classes and all required course materials (e.g. textbooks) have been purchased, complete the
Alternate Media Request Form. Students will need to submit this form for each item that needs to be converted. To view this form, please click here.
Step 3 - Bring the course materials (e.g. textbooks) you are requesting with proof of purchase to a DSPS office. Alt Media requests will not be completed until proof of purchase and the actual item has been reviewed by DSPS Staff.
**Copyright Infringement Laws require students provide Proof of Purchase before receiving their Alternate Media materials. If an original receipt is unavailable, the student may sign a document stating that he or she owns the textbook.
