Accessibility Resources Alternative Format Textbook Request

The digital age and the development of screen reading software has made it possible for individuals who cannot read or comprehend regular print to access print in various ways, hence the term alternate text format. Alternate text format (ATF) refers to the variety of ways print can be accessed using different formats which may include: Electronic text (E-text), scanned material, digital recordings and Braille.

Accommodations are individualized and are intended to minimize the impact a disability has on your access to an educational setting. Accommodations provide meaningful access to the programs, services and activities at MSUM.

If you are a returning student who is already approved for accommodations, you must request your current accommodation letter for each semester BEFORE you can arrange your accommodations.

Common approved accommodations can be arranged below. For other accommodations not noted here, please contact the Director of Accessibility Resources.

ALL accommodations you are arranging MUST be an approved accommodation and noted on your Accommodation Letter. Your Accommodation Letter will be emailed to you after the Director receives your request.

Complete and submit this form in its entirety. Accessibility Resources will not process your request to obtain this text in alternate format until you have completed the entire form.
