Disability Resource Center
Welcome to the DRC!
We make every effort to ensure each CSN campus and learning center is fully accessible to students with disabilities. Our Disability Resource Center not only offers academic accommodations for students with disabilities to ensure equal access to higher education. We also offer adaptive equipment to those who qualify to ensure equal access to all CSN sponsored activities.
DRC services include:
- Classroom Accommodations (Note Taking Assistance, Lab Assistant)
- Testing Accommodations (Extended Time, Reader, Scribe)
- Sign Language Interpreter / Speech-to-Text Transcription
- Alternative Text Format
- Adaptive Equipment Loan
- Adaptive Computer Lab
Getting your books in the appropriate media format is crucial to your academic success. Getting them quickly is also important.
If you are eligible for academic accommodations that include alternative media, please consider the following options before you submit a request to the DRC. You may save yourself time and money!
- Learning Ally
Accessible materials for individuals with visual and learning disabilities. To begin the certification process go to https://www.learningally.org/
Bookshare.org is a national database of newspapers, articles, and books. To sign up go to http://www.bookshare.org/signUpType
You can contact the publishers of your books directly by locating their information online. Publishers will have an ADA department that handles special alternative media orders.
- Websites for electronic books
Many websites are offering books in electronic format. These books are often cheaper than purchasing the physical copy and are much easier to convert into audio format. Some popular sites include: www.amazon.com or https://www.cheaptextbooks.com
Eligible DRC students can sign up for any or all of these resources. The DRC is here to help if you have any questions on acquiring alternative media that works for you. The DRC does not require that you use any of these sites. These resources are provided as a convenience to assist you in locating and quickly obtaining your books and supplemental reading.
