Audiobooks and E-Text Format

Students who have an approved accommodation to receive textbooks and other materials in an alternate format, such as audio books or e-text format, should complete the Alternate Format Request Form. All request should be emailed to or dropped off at the LSS office.

For ALL alternate format arrangements:

  • The student must purchase the textbook.
  • Requests will be handled in the order they are received. The closer to the beginning of the semester, the longer the wait time. It is best to put in your requests as soon as you register for classes.
  • Students who are not eligible for alternate text formats based on their documentation are still welcome to utilize Read & Write Gold.
