Alternate Text Formats

Students have the responsibility to inform the Disability Services Office of the course and text that is needed in alternate format.  

Students with a diagnosed learning disability, visual impairment, or physical disability may qualify for receiving textbooks in an alternate format. Eligibility for this accommodation is determined on a case-by-case basis, and students must be able to demonstrate a substantial visual, learning, or physical disability which requires alternate materials. Students are responsible for submitting textbook information to the Disability Services Office by filling out the Request Text in an Alternate Format form as soon as a listing of their books is available on the KUbookstore website.  Typically,  4-6 weeks notice is required to obtain some types of alternate formats for texts. Late requests will result in a delay in providing materials. The Disability Services Office will make every attempt to provide materials as promptly as possible. Reasonable accommodations depend on the nature and severity of the documented disability. While the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 requires that priority consideration be given to the specific methods requested by the student, it does not imply that a particular accommodation must be granted if it is deemed unreasonable and other suitable techniques are available.
