Alternate Format Accommodations

Our Assistive Technology staff will work with publishers and instructors to provide alternate format copies of instructional materials upon request for those students who have provided documentation of a print-based disability to the HCC ADA counselors.

Instructions: complete a separate form for each request to be submitted. Please note the fields with an asterisk (*) are required. Any information missing may result in delaying request being filled. E-texts will be used solely for the eligible student’s own educational purposes and will not be copied or duplicated for use by others. Publishers will not provide tapes or audio.

Please request materials 30 days (minimum) prior to class start date. Requesting materials on first day of class or later in semester can delay actual receipt of materials from publisher. Depending on the format requested, materials can take up to 12 weeks to receive and distribute.

If you do not receive an email from our staff within two business days of completing this request, please email Norma Jean Brand directly, Thank you.
