ACCESS Alternate Text Agreement

As an ACCESS student with current alternate text format accommodations for the current semester, I understand the following: 
  •  I understand that as an ACCESS student with current alternate text format accommodation assigned for the current term my textbook is being converted into an alternative text format (e-text, braille, audio format). 
  • I understand that ACCESS does not supply textbooks, and I am responsible to submit a receipt or proof of purchase at the time of alternative text format request or my request will not be processed.
  • I understand that any electronic text, which may be supplied to me, is solely for my own educational purposes. I will not copy or distribute any such electronic text in violation of the Copyright Revisions ACT of 1976, as amended (17 U.S.C. Sec. 101 et seq). 
  • I understand that failure to abide by this agreement may constitute a violation of the Student Code of Conduct and/or the college policy regarding the responsible use of ACCESS services. 
  • I understand that a violation of that policy, including improper distribution of electronic text, may result in the suspension of ACCESS services. Alternative text can take up to ten (10) business days to obtain, and Kurzweil conversations may take up to three days longer.
  • I understand that there is a possibility that my textbook may not be available in the alternate format requested. If this is the case, then I will need to allow for my textbook to be disassembled in order for ACCESS to scan and create the format needed.
