Equipment and Materials Available

Disability Services has some equipment, recorded books, and other materials available for student use. Some equipment is also available for student loan. Please speak with the Coordinator for the complete list of materials available for use or loan. Priority is given to students needing equipment for exams. Other needs for class related assignments can be scheduled subject to availability. Any student borrowing equipment or materials from Disability Services will be asked to sign a loan agreement. All equipment must be returned to Disability Services, at the end of the semester, in the same condition as it was borrowed. If equipment is not returned by the established deadline or the equipment is damaged, a fee for the replacement or repair cost will be placed on the student’s record.
