Use of text in an alternate format must first be approved by the Documentation Review Committee. Once the alternate format accommodation is approved, the student will work with the Coordinator for Text Conversion.
To receive a textbook in alternative format the student must submit a list of the books to be converted to the Coordinator for Text Conversion. This list must include the title, author, edition, ISBN number and the date of publication. This information can be obtained from My Illinois State. The due date of this list will be sent to all active text conversion students each semester. Book lists submitted by this designated date will receive first priority for completion by the beginning of the following semester.
This accommodation must be approved by the Documentation Review Committee. Once closed captioned videos are approved, the student must work with the Text Conversion Lab to obtain this accommodation. The Coordinator of Interpreting Services and the Coordinator of the Text Conversion Lab will collaborate to obtain the course schedule of the student for each semester. The faculty members teaching those courses will be contacted regarding any videos that may be used in the course. Students who add/change classes within two weeks of the beginning of a semester may be provided an alternative means of access to those class videos until closed captioning can be complete.
