Stanford's ten-week quarter system means classes progress quickly. We work to assist you with the provision of alternatively formatted course materials in a timely manner. To that end, we ask that you manage your accommodation requests accordingly. Please make your alternate format requests early and thoroughly.
It is the student's responsibility to provide the OAE in a timely manner with class syllabi, reading schedules, and instructor contact information, etc. When practicable, our office seeks to supply each student with his or her preferred alternative format; however, time and production constraints may dictate how the course material is made accessible.
Production of alternative format can only begin when we have all of the required information.
** In accordance with California state law (CA Education Code 67302), the student needs to submit proof of purchase for the book(s) and/or course reader(s) the OAE has converted into an alternative format (i.e. receipts, electronic invoices, etc.). Material cannot be released to a student until the Accommodations Coordinator (or designate) has verified proof of purchase.
If you have any questions, please e-mail Robin Cole, Alternate Format Production Manager.
Please Note - It is the student's responsibility to notify us of any delays or problems as soon as possible!
