Please schedule and meet with your Disability Specialist as soon as possible to determine if Alternative Media is an appropriate accommodation. Students should provide documentation that supports the need for print related accommodations. Students will be referred to the Alternative Media Center for an assessment to determine what type of software and format is the best fit. To schedule an appointment, please contact the DSP receptionist at (510) 642-0518.
The Alternative Media Center is comprised of trained staff that specializes in converting course materials into accessible formats for students with print related disabilities. Inaccessible course materials can be converted into either an accessible electronic or print format.
Alternative Media is an accommodation that is approved on an individual basis through the interactive process between the Disability Specialist and the student. Registered students who have met with a Disability Specialist and have provided documentation that supports the need for print related accommodations may be referred to the Alternative Media Center for an assessment.
