the application for services and upload your verification of disability.
Classes will available through an online format utilizing Canvas. Most professors
will be using discussion boards, posting PowerPoints and lectures notes, and posting
videos as part of their instruction. Because of the change in format, there should
not be a need for a peer note-taker. If you have any concerns about the accessibility
of methods and/or materials being used in your online class, please contact the EAC.
Instructors are able to adjust exam and quiz time in Canvas. Your instructors should
adjust your time to reflect your accommodated extended time for testing. You do not
need to submit a Test Accommodation Request Form in order for your instructor to make
these adjustments to your exam/quiz time. If your instructor has not made the extended
time adjustment, please remind them to do so. If you are having difficulty communicating
with your instructor on the need for extended time, please contact the EAC.
If you would like to request an appointment, contact us at email@example.com. Please list all of your available days/times. Appointments will be available via
phone or Zoom whichever format you feel most comfortable using. Please be aware that
phone calls may appear as private/blocked and/or you will not recognize the number.
Please answer any calls you receive during your appointed meeting time. Zoom: Is an
easy to use conferencing platform that can be used on your cell phone, computer, or
iPad, with or without video. If you chose the Zoom option, we will provide you information
via an invite through your campus email. It’s really easy to use.
Assistive Technology & Alternate Media
Kurzweil 3000 will still be available to students who have this as an accommodation.
Kurzweil does work in Canvas. If you need support in using Kurzweil in Canvas, please
contact the EAC.
If you encounter any inaccessible materials that need to be converted into an electronic

Transitioning to online instruction can be very challenging. We are here to help during
this transition and beyond. The EAC is offering math/chemistry tutoring via Zoom (it
will be a more enriched experience if you use video for this). If you are interested
in tutoring, please email us your available days/times and we will do our best to match your requested time. Other
tutoring is available through The Learning Center.
