Many of you have already used our alternative testing services - about 500 of you! That is a great many exams. We are still working on getting our on-line system in place but it might not be working until next semester. In the meantime, please start thinking about booking your exam day/time for finals.
If you are going to need alternative text services for next semester, please provide your book request forms as soon as you can. You can get your list of books from the bookstore once you register for classes for next semester. The sooner we have your requests, the sooner you will have them for next semester. Converting print to an alternative format takes time and the conversion process is usually done on a first come, first serve basis. For more information, contact Nico Gowdy, our interim coordinator of Alt. Text at Alternative Text .
The new staff at RDS are settled in now. But we are still working on our on-line system. We hope to have this ready by next semester so for now, please continue to use our old stand-by processes to schedule your time with us: call 491-6385 to see a specialist and complete the three copied exam request form for your exams.
